Opening at the Sprinkler Factory Gallery
I want to invite any readers in the central Massachusetts area to an group exhibition and opening to be held at the Sprinkler Factory Gallery this coming Saturday, April 8 from 6 to 9 PM. The exhibition includes the work of eleven photographers who are all members of Ron Rosenstock’s Sunday Night Group. Ron’s Sunday night group has quite a history, going back three decades. Ron was a student of Minor White who taught the importance of what to me is a more contemplative approach to the experience of looking at and taking photographs. One tries to look at the image in a completely nonjudgemental fashion and experience what the photograph provokes in you. It is actually a disciplined process that is I have to say easier said than done. My recent series, “Lost in the Water” will be on display as well as the work of a terrific group of photographic artists. Stop by if you’re interested, refreshments will be served (Though I think it’s a cash bar. Hey, nothing’s perfect.) You’ll find directions at the link above.
The Sprinkler Factory Gallery by the way is a fascinating place, a wonderful repurposing of an old mill. My hat is off to the developers and proprietors. Well done. Note the closing reception April 30. You’re invited to that too!
