Beginning July 1, The Washington Street Gallery at Eastport Arts Center will host “Missing Voices”, an exhibition of photographs by Eastport resident Vivian Taylor. The exhibition will run through through July 30, with a reception on Saturday, July 14, from 4-6 p.m.
Taylor’s photographic series dates from the 1990s, when she began work on a book about the life of Ruth Hamilton, a colleague and prominent African-American singer in Boston, Massachusetts. The photographs originated in interviews for the book in Boston, Cambridge, and other Massachusetts cities, as well as in Atlanta, Georgia, where Hamilton was born. The project came to include musicians, clergy, family and friends from various churches, a synagogue, an outdoor cathedral in New Hampshire, and an ancient church in Pont-Aven in Brittany, France where Ruth performed.
Washington Street Gallery is open Tuesday-Friday, 11 am-4 pm, during EAC events, or by chance or by appointment; contact email@example.com. The Eastport Arts Center is at 36 Washington Street, Eastport and http://www.eastportartscenter.org, and is handicapped-accessible.
