Annual Student Show at Hooker-Dunham Gallery!
In the last year, In-Sight students spent countless hours documenting communities, activities, and Vermont life in order to express their individual experiences and their place in the world. Through dedicated work in both the darkroom and digital lab, youth created amazing images that portray all aspects of their lives. You can view these creative and heart-felt photographs at our Annual Student Exhibit, held at the Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery during the month of May. Every artist knows that an important step in the creative process is the public display of one’s efforts. For many of our students, this is often the first time showing their work in a public venue and, often, the most exciting part of making images. The Annual Student Exhibit demonstrates In-Sight’s contribution to the lives of young people in the area. It also aims to bring people from Brattleboro and beyond together to recognize and celebrate the hard work and importance of youth in our communities. The exhibit is a wonderful opportunity for community members to show their support and admiration for what these young people have accomplished, sometimes against significant odds. In-Sight appreciates the support of the Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery, a multi-media arts venue committed to supporting the interplay of artists and community which features a large, professional gallery space. Since the Hooker-Dunham is also home to a theater and performance space, the building is a busy community focal point and a natural venue for exposure to In-Sight students’ art and to In-Sight as an organization.
Join us May 3 from 5:30–8:30 pm at the Hooker-Dunham Gallery for the opening celebration! In-Sight students submitted their best work for this public event, showcasing an array of styles and techniques. The diversity of images on display will range from traditional black and white silver gelatin prints to digital inkjet prints, from landscapes to portraits—each print as unique as the student who made it. The In-Sight staff, volunteers, and board members are equally excited to share these images with the community and hope you will join us.
The Hooker-Dunham Theater and Gallery is located at 139 Main Street, Brattleboro, VT. For more information about the Hooker-Dunham Gallery, go to hookerdunham.org.
