Fitchburg Art Museum will present an exhibition of two, award-winning. New England- based photographers in "Sohier/ Hilliard: Our Parents, Ourselves," Sept. 7-Jan. 5, 2020.
This innovative show will include a selection of David Hilliard’s photographs of his father that he has taken intermittently since the 1990s and photos from Sage Sohier’s series, Witness to Beauty, which captured Sohier’s former fashion model mother for over a decade. Together these photographs explore aging, each photographer’s relationship with a parent, and self-reflection.The 16 photographs on view in Sohier/Hilliard: Our Parents, Ourselves provide intimate portraits of two individuals, while also presenting a dynamic snapshot of adult children and parents maturing in tandem.
This exhibition is organized by FAM Curator Lisa Crossman. Opening Reception will be held on Saturday, September 21, 3-5 p.m. The event is FREE with Museum admission.
A Conversation Café with the artists will be held on Wednesday, October 23 at 7 p.m. to coincide with their exhibition. Event admission is $5 for Museum Members, $10 for non-members, and free for students with ID. Beverages and snacks will be provided, as well as a cash bar.
