Various member photographers
December 8 – January 5, 2021
Virtual Reception December 13, 2020 4 - 6 PM
For the eighth year, The Griffin Museum invited all of its current members to exhibit in the Winter Solstice Exhibition. From across the world, artists entered one piece to be on display for December 8, 2020 – January 5, 2021. Photographs are presented on the walls of our Main Gallery of the Griffin and display a spectrum of genres and processes. The opening reception is virtual and on Sunday, December 13, 2020 from 4-6 PM. Sales are encouraged and many artists have donated the proceeds back to the Griffin. We are so grateful for that demonstration of support.
We exhibit the work on line, on social media and feature the work for sale in the Main Gallery and on-line if the artists choose to sell. We feature those works that are not for sale in the gallery and online as well.
The reason for this yearly exhibition is to give our members an unencumbered opportunity to exhibit at least once a year at the museum. We also chose the season of giving, providing incentives for our audience to buy photographs as gifts. This year, despite the pandemic we received a healthy number of photographers choosing to showcase work in this exhibition.
The subject matter reflects the times. Many of the photographs are of solitary moments and reflective on the natural world. In a time of social distancing this makes perfect sense. It also tells us that our members used this opportunity to go out safely, seeking refuge in the woods, garden and studio to find significant moments in time to share with the Griffin’s audience. As Dorothea Lange said and our members demonstrate on the walls of our Main Gallery, “Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.”
