“01301/2: photos of Greenfield” Show Opening February 6!

It’s time for the 2nd annual art show sponsored by the Greenfield Local Cultural Council, “01301/2: photos of Greenfield.” This year’s show features photos of Greenfield chosen from submissions to the Master Plan photo contest and those submitted directly to the GLCC. It will run from February 6 through the end of March at the Greenfield Community College Downtown Campus at 270 Main Street. Building hours are Monday – Friday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and in the evenings when classes are being held.

A four-person jury made up of Braden Chattman, a faculty member at the Hallmark Institute of Photography who was also on last year’s jury; Karen Gaudette, artist, educator, and winner of last year’s show “01301: images by, for, and about Greenfield”; Beth Reynolds, photographer, educator, and owner of base camp photo; and Greenfield Mayor Bill Martin curated the show and chose the three winning images. The show will include an additional gallery of work from local professional photographers who were invited to show by the GLCC.

Please join us at the opening on Thursday, February 6 from 5 – 7 p.m. as we celebrate Greenfield as captured through the lens of these talented photographers. Light refreshments will be served; no admission charge. You can see the facebook event page here.
