As part of Art in August in Winchester, for August the Griffin Museum will have free admission to exhibitions for Winchester Residents with proof of residency. Come get to know us.
In conjunction with Lynn Saville’s exhibition, Dark City, photographers of all ages and skill levels are invited to join Ms. Saville for a Twilight Photography Workshop. Participants will meet at the Griffin’s 67 Shore Road, Winchester, MA, location on Wednesday, March 22nd at 6:00 pm for a 3-hour session, and on Saturday, March 25th from 10:00 am-12:00 pm via a 2-hour online session.
Part 1: On March 22nd: As the sun sets and twilight begins, Saville will lead the group in exploring several uninhabited areas near the Griffin Museum. She will provide valuable tips for low-light photography, offer insights into her own practice, and share fascinating anecdotes from her own experience in photographing cities at night. It is recommended that you bring a tripod, but it’s not required.
Part 2: On March 25th: Meet online with Lynn Saville to review the images taken from the Twilight Photography session and have a critical dialogue.
The cost for the class is $125 for members and $150 for non-members and those interested in joining the workshop can register on-line at or sign up for it during the opening reception for Saville’s exhibition at The Stoneham Theatre on March 21st.
Lynn Saville’s recent monograph Dark City: Urban America at Night will be available for purchase at the museum and the artist will be happy to sign copies.
BIO: Fine-art photographer Lynn Saville was educated at Duke University and Pratt Institute. Saville specializes in photographing both cities and rural settings at twilight and dawn, or as she describes it, “the boundary times between night and day.”
Her photographs are published in two previous monographs: Acquainted With the Night (Rizzoli, 1997) and Night/Shift (Random House/Monacelli, 2009). Her new book of photographs, Dark City, with an introduction by award winning critic, Geoff Dyer, was published in the Fall of 2015 by Damiani (Bologna, Italy). Her work is in the permanent art collections of major museums, corporations, and individuals. She lives in New York City with her husband, the poet Philip Fried.
