The Spaulding R. Aldrich Heritage Gallery 50 Douglas Road, Whitinsville, MA
Three outstanding artists come together to share their love of photography.
Tess Davis strives to capture the authentic and intimate moments unique to families. “It's important to me to capture raw, genuine emotion when I shoot,” says Davis. “I want my subjects connecting with each other rather than connecting with me and the camera.”
Using a large format camera (4x5) and large-format Polaroid (20x24), Scarlett V. Hoey focuses on exploring identity, domesticity, gender, and relationships. “I’m inspired by my dual identity, Australian-American,” Says Hoey. “My photography examines my roots, family, and environment.” The result is a blend of striking large portraiture and still-life images.
James Hunt explores the interdependent and often conflicted relationship between human activity and the natural environment. “The locations in these images are recreation sites along the east coast of the United States. All are being impacted by rising seas and the efforts made to somehow manage that impact,” explains Hunt.
“We’re so excited to share this exhibit with the community.” says Cristi Collari, Director of Community Outreach and resident curator of the Gallery. “Together these three artists will fill the Heritage Gallery with beautiful, evocative images that will surely capture your attention!”
Exhibit ends on February 28, 2020. Regular gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 9:00AM to 4:00 PM, weekends and evenings by special appointment.
