Cutter Gallery logo

UPDATED May 15: The Cutter Gallery is a hidden gem with limited hours, but you can find it on the lowest floor of the Jefferson Cutter House, which houses the Dallin Art Museum and the Chamber of Commerce.

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."
