Join some of the area’s talented young photographers for an Open Studio at the Farnsworth Art Museum’s Julia’s Gallery on Friday, September 2nd from 5 to 7 p.m. during the First Friday Art Walk. Over the course of the summer these high school students have been surveying and experimenting with the conceptual side of art in a 10-week photography program called “Outside the Frame”. Their ideas and photographic sketches are presented as works in progress including hand-made books, prints, and video/stills. The participating young photographers include Fiona Boyd, Abby Billington, Tonya Bartlett, Hannah Sirois, Rachel Borch, Ben Shepherd, Colby Hill, Autumn Coyle, Jewelia Dickinson, Katie Pratt, and Carman Lamb. The summer workshop was lead by artist-educator, Deanna Witman.
During the upcoming First Friday Art Walk, join some of the area’s talented young photographers, ages 12 to 14 for an open studio at the Farnsworth Art Museum’s Julia’s Gallery, from 5 to 7 p.m. Over the course of the summer these young photographers have been surveying the history of photography and contemporary artists to gain a better understanding of how to decipher images and to use this information to make better photographs.
