We are now closed and installing new shows. We open with new exhibitions on the evening of July 19th.
Neal Rantoul will provide information about his workshop on Martha’s Vineyard. Come to the Griffin to learn more!
Here is a bit of information:
Spend a week on the Vineyard with master photographer Neal Rantoul making pictures, receiving feedback and exploring the island in June 2018. We will be based in Chilmark, using Rantoul’s family home for our classes and critique sessions. With daily lessons, assignments and projects we will work to expand our knowledge of the discipline and to put lessons learned into practice with frequent field trips throughout the island. Rantoul has been a summer resident of the island his whole life so knows its unique landscape and character better than most. Additionally we have the option of making aerial photographs during the week as well.
After dinner each night we will meet at the house to critique the day’s work and for slide shows, including seeing faculty work. This will be an immersive week of all things Martha’s Vineyard. Great food, legendary light and a landscape green and verdant in late spring. There is no better time to visit the Vineyard than in June, before most tourists arrive.
