Opening Reception Tonight for “Hilltown Families: A Traveling Photography Exhibit”
Hilltown Families: A Traveling Photography Exhibit
At the Northampton Center for the Arts
in July & August 2011
Opening Reception: Friday, July 8th from 5-8pm
On Friday, July 8th from 5-8pm at the Northampton Center for the Arts, Hilltown Families: A Traveling Photography Exhibit opens in the center’s East Gallery, taking part in Northampton’s Arts Night Out with an opening reception.
Photographs of life and landscape in Western MA featured on HilltownFamilies.org over the years by Hilltown Families founder and photographer, Sienna Wildfield, will be on display. In a recent interview with Ashley Kohl of 22News Mass Appeal, Wildfield explains how the images in the exhibit aim to reflect the local culture and community values found in Western MA.
“We’re thrilled to be invited by the Northampton Center for the Arts to display the exhibit in their East Gallery this summer,” says Wildfield. “It’s a great opportunity to showcase photographs from Northampton, including images from last year’s Chalk Art Festival, the Tuesday Market and this year’s Busker’s Ball.”
The images will be on display from July 8th trough August 19th, with an opening reception on July 8th from 5-8pm. The exhibit will then move to the Meekins Library in Williamsburg, to display several new images that reflect the season and the host town.
All images in this exhibit are for sale and are a fundraiser for Hilltown Families, a community communication network that has been helping to connect and create community in western Massachusetts for over five years. All net proceeds from the sale of images will benefit the organization.
Northampton Center for the Arts is located on the third floor of the Sullivan Square building, 17 New South St. For information visit them at www.nohoarts.org or call 413-584-7327.
