I’ve spent much of the past several weeks working on a large, new show of photographs at our local Kellogg-Hubbard Library. It is actually three shows in one! On the first floor are a dozen old favorites including these, among others:
Although I’ve shown these elsewhere over the past year, I find they continue both to please me and draw many comments. Not surprisingly, each venue also brings a new audience. As I was hanging this part of the show I enjoyed surmising how the rather otherwise purposeful library patrons will respond!
On the second floor I have experimented with hanging a series of new photographs in groups of three. I’m finding I love the way the three individual images relate to create a new whole. This arrangement is but one of more than a dozen examples, though part of their power is seeing them hanging in a group (I’ll post some photographs of them in a day or two):
I’m very excited about the display in the Children’s Room, where, unfortunately, art shows are typically not hung. There I’ve hung another dozen new images and asked the kids to respond to the question “What do you see?” My intent is to publish a book of the images and a selection of their comments. I did my best to select images that would engage and yet also be accessible. Here are two—though in the Library they hang without captions!
If you are in Montpelier on Monday, January 27, please feel free to join me for the opening reception from 4-6. If you can’t make the opening, know that the show will be up until the end of February.
