The Tony and Academy Award winner will take guests on a personal international journey of her photographs — landscape, portrait and still photos — taken over three decades. The photos will be on exhibit at the Manhattan gallery from Oct. 27-Nov. 14.

Proceeds from sales of the works will help raise money for S.H.A.R.E., a non-profit organization that supplies medical relief and support to disadvantaged children in Africa.

Burstyn will begin in Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All at the Longacre Theatre, Oct. 31 with an opening night set for Nov. 17. The solo work directed by Don Scardino stars the actress as Lucy Marsden, a woman who marries a 50-year old Civil War veteran when she is only 15. The one-woman drama chronicles the young bride, spanning the entire 99-year oral history of her life.

Burstyn won a Tony for her turn in Same Time, Next Year and her Oscar for the film "Alice Doesn't Live Her Anymore" — both in the same year (1975). Other stage credits include 84 Charing Cross Road, Shirley Valentine, Shimada, Sacrilege and Fair Game. Her other Oscar nominated roles include "The Last Picture Show," "The Exorcist," "Same Time, Next Year," "Resurrection" and, most recently, for "Requiem for a Dream."

The Uma Gallery is located at 30 West 57th Street in New York City on the sixth floor.
