Riverhead Town Hall Gallery: Virginia Khuri (2014)
photographer / Shelter Island
"The Arrival of Spring in Mashomack"
September 8 - November 28, 2014
Virginia Khuri, a fellow of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain, has been making photographic fine prints since 1977, first in London, England and most recently on the East End of Long Island, New York. She began working solely in traditional black and white but now also uses archival digital technology. She uses her camera not to document the world before her lens, but to convey something of the quality of her particular individual experience of it. This exhibition, The Arrival of Spring in Mashomack, is a celebration of its spirit or essence as revealed through a meditative or contemplative type of seeing – a sort of listening through the visual cacophony which surrounds us to sense a stillness.
The Riverhead Town Hall art exhibits are a collaborative effort on the part of East End Arts and the Township of Riverhead to support local artists and introduce their works to the community. The public is welcome; admission is free.
HOURS: Mondays - Fridays, 9 AM - 4 PM
LOCATION: Riverhead Town Hall, 200 Howell Avenue, on the corner of Howell and East Main Street, Riverhead, NY
