Saturday September 6, 2014 at 6pm with photo exhibit
Essential Moments at the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center
300 Wall Street, Kingston NY
I’m honored to have the opportunity to present a range of work on subjects that captivate me: the importance of family pictures, the beauty of the people, animals, and landscape of our region. Of course any time I exhibit photographs, the choice of work is limited by the space, so it’s great fun to have a chance to show lots of images that don’t usually get seen. The Virginia Apuzzo Hall at The Center is a great big space, so I am lucky to be able to show a wide range of work–from Hudson Valley farm animals to landscapes of our region, to a set of dog portraits, to a set of photos of gay folks that I’ve never exhibited. When I put that last set together, I felt like I was making a present to my younger self, as a group of images like that would have been unimaginable in the 1960s.
The slideshow will include some images of from my childhood to show where my love of family photography started. My father was an illustrator/artist who used photography, and we had a darkroom in our house. There will be a range of photos of people, nature, animals, and pets. It will be a big dose of beauty–I hope you can come out! Here are a few images that’ll be in the slideshow. Click on any photo to see more on my website.
The Center has a big screen and projector and it’ll be a wonderful chance to get together, to talk and ask questions, to connect in enjoyment of beauty.
The exhibit Essential Moments will be at the Center through September 30. The Center’s business hours are 9:30 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday, and during the Uptown Kingston Farmer’s Market from 10 am – 2 pm most Saturdays. 845-331-5300
