Opening Reception: Saturday, July 23, 2011, 1:00 to 5:00 pm

A Space for Faith: The Colonial Meeting Houses of New England is a stunning collection of classic black-and-white photographs that honors the quiet beauty of once ubiquitous landmarks of the New England landscape.  In early Puritan communities, meetinghouses were used for religious worship and town business.  The were the central focus of the community, and were an important point of contact for all.  While most colonial meetinghouses that are still standing have been extensively renovated, a few remain – touched only by time.  Paul Wainwright steps us back to the late 1700s to explore these structures, their emptiness, and the wonderful sense of space and light that now fills them.”

The exhibition opens July 22nd and will be up until September 4th.
