The gallery's May exhibition, "The Soul of a Camera" by Richard Krigstein, continues Sunday, May 15, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Exhibit closing reception:  Sunday, May 29, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.


"My dad took this photo of me when I was 3 years old, when we lived on Breeze Avenue in Venice, Calif. My dad had a simple camera, but he had an eye for capturing the moment. My dad bought me a Kodak Brownie for one of my birthdays, and I’ve been snapping away ever since.

"I currently live with Arlene in the small town of Sharon, Mass. Previously, I lived in Sonoma County, Calif., and Boulder, Colo.

"One of my favorite subjects is clouds, whether they are central to the image, or supporting actors. Clouds have a short, ephemeral life of their own. They are born, change, sometimes combine with other clouds, and then fade away. In some ways, they are atmospheric metaphors for human beings. I could watch them all day."

Artist statement

"My mission as a photographer is to share the sense of awe and wonder I feel about the world we live in. If viewing my work evokes an appreciation of the depth and diversity of beauty that is life, I have succeeded."
