Title:Photographs by Jeffrey Waldron, Jennifer Ablard, and Jonathan Moldover
Date:Saturday, May 28, 2016
Time:All Day Event
Location:Hosmer Gallery
Categories:Exhibitions
Description:

Jennifer Ablard created this exhibit from a series of photographs taken over the span of 4 years. A daily commute took Jennifer past this lone apple tree in the middle of conservation land. She had the pleasure of seeing this orchard survivor in all manner of weather and mood. Using an extended period of time to study a location is one example of how Jennifer uses perspective.

Jonathan Moldover has been photographing the details of the world around him for over 55 years. Aside from his 6 grandchildren, his favorite subjects theses days are botanical closeups and street photography. When photographing flowers, he tries to identify what attracted him to the plant and then emphasize it in the image.

Jeffrey Waldron is a photographer and painter who has been working in the Pioneer Valley since 2000. Originally from Amherst, MA, he now lives in Granby with his wife Cherry. In addition to her own work, Cherry works with him in creating and showing his art. Hummingbirds are Jeff's current obsession, and he is not only photographing and painting them, but is trying to create a Hummingbird Garden in his backyard.

How the Writing Room Works: Each session opens at 9:30 sharp with brief hellos, followed by the pleasure of getting work done in the company of others. Some writers work in other parts of the library, then join us at 11:45 to check in about how the work went and make announcements. At (roughly) 12, anyone who wishes to read for the group does briefly, without critique or spoken response. We're done by 12:30. There are writing prompts on the table for those who like to use them. There are four hour parking meters in the back of the lot. Consider bringing a sweater. Writers are welcome to come for all or part of the session.
