One of the very nice things about keeping this blog is that I have made all sorts of friends and acquaintances whom I've never actually met. One of these virtual friends, Beth Wilson, wrote to remind me about an exhibition she has curated - Taking a Different Tack: Maggie Sherwood and the Floating Foundation of Photography
- at the Dorsky
Museum of Art at SUNY
. The exhibition runs through April 8th
. Beth is moderating what looks to be an interesting panel discussion scheduled this coming Thursday (see the poster above for information).
Sherwood was not only committed to photography at a time when it was hardly lucrative but - more impressively to my way of thinking - she established a creative exhibition and educational space. You can find the Foundation web page here
. At a time when our cultural ecology is under pressures of all
sorts, I think this is an incredibly important topic.
