ABOUT THE SHOW

FRAMING A STORY is an exhibition of local photographers featuring photographic essays. Photo essays are a set or series of photographs intended to tell a story, moreso than through a single image.  Photo essays can be thematic (i.e. address a topic or issue) or narrative (i.e. telling a story in chronological sequence).

The reception for FRAMING A STORY will take place from 6-8 pm Friday, July 12th to celebrate the participating artists’ work with music, food, and drinks.  The exhibition will be up through August 4th.
