“The PRC’s Global Health in Focus project focuses on three of the greatest health challenges the world community faces today: HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and access to clean water. This project aims to educate our New England community about these critical global health issues, utilizing documentary photography to offer direct insight into the individuals and communities affected. The panel discussion, along with the exhibition, will lead to a greater understanding of the challenges and possible solutions to global health problems, particularly the work of Boston-based institutions.

The overarching goal of “Why Global Health Matters” is to bridge the arts, journalism, and medical communities by analyzing the ongoing universal concerns communicated in the exhibition and publication. By organizing and presenting this project, the PRC serves as a resource not only for photographers but for professionals in the healthcare, human rights, and public policy fields, as well as demonstrating the power of the photographic image.”

This panel is being presented in conjunction the exhibition Global Health in Focus, with work by Kristen Ashburn, Dominc Chavez, and David Rochkind.  The exhibition will be on view February 9th to March 24th at the PRC.

Lecture by Vick Goldberg: American Women Photographers
Wednesday, February 22, 2012 at 6:30 pm
Admission: $10 General public | $5 Members & Students

Vicki Goldberg, one of the leading voices in the field of photography criticism, will discuss how and why American women photographers, most prominently Cindy Sherman and Nan Goldin, came to the attention of the photography world in the late 1970s and early 1980s after lurking on the fringes for a long time. She will also examine the way the principle concerns of that first crop of important women artists, including the entire appropriation movement, have persisted to the present day and continue to influence photographers.”

Janelle Lynch, Los Jardines de México

Thursday, December 1, 2011
Artist Talk at 5:30 pm
Opening Reception from 6:30 to 8:00pm

Janelle Lynch‘s photographs in her recent title, Los Jardines de México explore themes related to the life cycle and its representations in the urban and rural landscape. Made between 2002 and 2007, each project investigates, if not embraces, a specific facet of existence: loss, death, regeneration, and life. The exhibition is comprised of four series: El Jardín de Juegos, serving as her first project upon moving to Mexico City; Donde Andaba, juxtaposing wild plant life with architecture; Akna, anthropomorphizing tree stumps in a nature reserve; and La Fosa Común, focusing on a functioning, century-old common grave centrally located within the city. The combination of these four bodies of work, three from Mexico City and one from Chiapas, examines the persistence of life. ”

July 23rd, Turners Falls, Mass: Opening Reception for Photographs by Paul Wainwright

The Gallery at Hallmark
Photographs by Paul Wainwright: A Space for Faith: The Colonial Meeting Houses of New England

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.
