Opening Reception, Wednesday, March 7, 7:00 pm, on view March 2-28, Gallery: With a focus on personal and familial relationships, Stacy Friedman has done extensive research, sifting through immigration and census records, searching archives and studying hundreds of old photographs. Printmaking’s inherent capability to preserve traces of previous images, and the ability to print ghosts of a matrix, make it an ideal medium to explore the ideas of history, memory, and both the parallel and interwoven realms of past and present. The prints in this show fill the gaps of the artist’s known and unknown family history, while also reaching beyond the specifics of her family to tell a universal story.
Newton Camera Club, March 2018, Main Hall
Opening Reception, Tuesday, March 6, 7:00 pm, on view March 2-29, Main Hall: The joy of photography is what brings together members of the Newton Camera Club. Their annual print exhibit showcases some of the best work produced by club members, with a variety of photographic subjects and approaches. The Club’s photographers range from novice to professional, but all share a passion for photography, whether through capturing nature's many moods, the varied forms and expressions of human subjects or through the delight in capturing some little detail that most would not notice.
