The Photography of Joanna Garbisch
Jul 5 – Aug 14 all-day

Photographer Joanna Garbisch’s interest in photography started in college when she was handed a Polaroid Camera for an art class. On graduating, she went to work for Polaroid’s color lab in Cambridge, MA. In the early 60’s, Dr. Land switched his attention from black and white to color, so in the lab Joanna and colleagues made the developer, positive and negative film from dyes and chemicals supplied by chemists. Within a year she was sent out to test the film in the real world and she never looked back. Over the years she has travelled and seen the world through the lens.

Journaling Group
Jul 24 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Journaling Group: The Second and Fourth Mondays of each Month
10:30 am-12:00 pm
Facilitated by Sue Geno
The Journaling Group supports personal journeys of discovery, creativity and reflection in a nurturing, open environment. We draw upon prompts, poetry, images and natural objects to inspire and practice a variety of journal modes– writer’s journals, daybooks, spiritual journals, nature journals, artistic journals and more. We work collaboratively to shape our direction as a group, and sometimes even to create collaborative writing or art. Bring your journal in whatever form you keep it, along with your favorite tools, a willingness to experiment, and your own ideas. You’ll be invited but never expected to share anything, and we do not critique each other’s work. We do set one ground rule: confidentiality. All levels of experience are welcome. Newcomers are always welcome!
