Photography Exhibition 8/6-9/6

Posted by Melissa Lamar - September 6, 2012 - - No Comments

The public is invited to an exhibition of black and white photography by Nancy Goodrich in the Wallace Barnes and Barbara Hackman Franklin Art Gallery at Tunxis August 6-September 6. An opening reception will be held August 6, 4-6 p.m. in the Barnes-Franklin Gallery. Refreshments will be served.

The black and white photographs are semi-abstract self portraits. In an excerpt from her artist statement, written as a poem, Goodrich writes,

“I’ve worn this body decades now,

it brought us a son whose children

carry our blood.

It’s carried me and sustained you

to flooded rice fields and jungle temples.

My body has brought you back from death,

has sat with you as you weaved in and out.

It’s been worn smooth,

like faint lines in sand, soft waves

where sea fingers reach in and in again.”

Goodrich says she began taking photography seriously at the age of 60. She resides in Portland with her husband.

The Barnes-Franklin Art Gallery is open Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m.-8 p.m. and by appointment. For more information, call 860.773.1621 or email William Kluba at
