Mitzi Kielar

I come from a family of artists and photographers, including my grandfather who had a photographic studio at the beginning of the 20th century. My education at Penn State led to 35 years of teaching art, photography, pottery, crafts, and computer graphics. Most of those years I taught at Honesdale High School, where my husband Jerry also taught. I was also involved in many theater productions that he directed and for which I designed and built sets. It’s always been gratifying to talk, and Facebook, with former students and to see haw they have used art in their lives.

My style of photography tends towards the abstract, but I also like to celebrate the beauty of nature, especially of Wayne County. I have been enough to travel and have preserved my memories of Mexico, Costa Rica, Poland, Ireland, England and Alaska in hundreds, or could I say, thousands of photos and not one “selfie.”
