New York State Grange Photographs by Andrew Baugnet
This exhibition examines the history, cultural importance, and legacy of New York State granges. Baugnet's images of grange exteriors and interiors feature strong lines and evocative displays of light and shadow. The large-scale back and white photographs offer a stunning homage to the beauty and simplicity of these buildings.
Baugnet became fascinated by New York State grange buildings decades ago after following signs advertising a chicken dinner. Since then, he has spent much of his career photographing grange buildings across the state. Baugnet specializes in documenting historic architecture and the built environment. His grange photographs are visually compelling and serve as important records of rural communities.
May 7 through September 4, 2022
Created in collaboration with Chesterwood to honor the Lincoln Memorial’s centennial in May 2022, this exhibition will highlight the work of illustrators and artists who have incorporated the Lincoln Memorial into their art as a symbolic element – an instantly-recognizable icon upon which to build meaning. Approximately fifty historical and contemporary artworks by noted illustrators and cartoonists will be featured, as will archival photographs, sculptural elements, artifacts, and ephemera.
2022 Quilt Group Show — Salmon Falls Gallery hosts eight quilt and fiber artists in a group exhibit featuring a wide range of quilting styles and techniques.
On view May 5 – June 27, 2022, reception on Sunday, May 8 from 2-4pm.
May 5 through June 27 Salmon Falls Gallery hosts an exhibition of eight mostly local quilters, many of national and award winning renown. Quilting, the stitching of fabrics together, has evolved from being an exercise of necessity to an art form. Along the way, it has become essential housework, social and community exercise, and hobby. The quintessential ‘women’s work’, quilting is a medium of nearly endless possibilities — both alone and coupled with other methods. This group of quilters were chosen for their wide range of styles and techniques, so that a full range of possibilities can be appreciated and contrasted.
Featured are the works of Timna Tarr, Lee Sproull, Carson Converse, Wen Redmond, Sarah Stroud, Ann Brauer, Carol Anne Grotrian, and Audrey Hyvonen.
There is a reception in the gallery for the artists and the community Sunday, May 8th from 2-4pm. All are welcome.
Salmon Falls Gallery is located at 1 Ashfield Street in Shelburne Falls, MA, 01370. Contact the gallery at 413-625-9833 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Beginning May 1, the gallery is open every day from 11am to 5pm.
This is a fun event for dogs and humans! 1.5 miles of mud and obstacles for both humans and canines! Prizes for the best in weight class, dog oriented vendors, local rescues and K-9 units for all day fun.
