On the Street: A Juried Exhibition

Street photography uses the techniques of straight photography in that it shows a pure vision of something, like holding up a mirror to society. Street photography often tends to be ironic and can be distanced from its subject matter, and often concentrates on a single human moment, caught at a decisive or poignant moment. On the other hand, much street photography takes the opposite approach and provides a very literal and extremely personal rendering of the subject matter, giving the audience a more visceral experience of walks of life they might only be passingly familiar with…

…this is the essence we are focusing all of our photographic efforts on for our upcoming exhibit throughout the month of March titled “On the Street”. This exhibit will feature works by 37 New England photographers from over 6 different states and 2 countries – a total of 52 pieces on the walls – and we hope this diverse array of imagery will shed a new light on the everyday public scenes we often take for granted.

Participating photographers will include:
Don David, Robert Alter, Maureen Donah, Kathleen Carr, Robyn Day, Bob Cantius, Richard Pearce, R. Mark Burke, Henry C. Miller, George Greenstein, Brent Seabrook, David Holzapfel, Tony Donovan, Matt Jiggins, Anthony Tulliani, Tony Schwartz, Geoff Van Kirk, Bernard Kubiak, Greg Saulmon, Paul Miller, Kiera McTigue, Larry Mizrahi, Liz LaVorgna, Anita Licis-Ribak, Andrew Hodgdon, Robert Cullinane, Moti Zemelman, Cynthia Hughes, Sarah Holbrook, Bill Dixon, Annie Flanagan, Mary Bachmann, Brian Yordnoff, Daniel Peters, Roger Turner, Michael Havey, & Colin Havey.

We will be holding our opening reception the evening of March 2, 2012 from 5:30 to 8:30pm during Brattleboro’s Gallery Walk. You can count on lots of great company, refreshments, live music, and excellent artwork!

The exhibit will be on display through the month with its last day to be March 31st.
