Exhibit Looks At Irene Through Photographers’ Eyes
By Mary Lee Camp Special To The Standard
Friday, January 6 was the opening night for a photographic exhibition called “Images from Irene: Telling Our Stories Through Photos and Poems,” held at the ArtisTree Community Arts Center & Gallery located at the foot of Mt. Tom on Route 12 in Woodstock.
The exhibit reflects the work of six community members who participated in a photography class at the Arts Center taught by Carla Kimball from Hartland.
Over the seven-session course at ArtisTree, students combined photography, poetry and stories to chronicle their experiences of Tropical Storm Irene. Rick Fiske, an exhibitor said of his experience as a student, “This class made me appreciate the power of photography in communicating a story,” Fiske said, adding, “It helped me see another side of Irene; in dark there’s also light.”
The exhibition will be available for viewing Tuesdays through Saturdays, January 7-21 from 11 a.m. 2 p.m. or by appointment.
ArtisTree is a spin off from Purple Crayon Productions, an art and music center for children, founded by Kathleen Dolan in 2003. Responding to a need for programs for teens and adults, ArtisTree was founded in October 2010 to offer year-round classes and workshops in the visual arts and music.
