Come explore the art of N. Frances Parker in a new exhibition opening at the East Amwell Museum this Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.
The opening will feature Parker’s photographs from her series titled The Year of Luminosity, which when completed will consist of 364 original digital photographs, each titled for one day of the year.
“As each day is unique to an individual, each photograph is unique to the observer at any I encourage the viewer to lose themselves in the photographs by wandering in their own thoughts and feelings,” Parker said.
Her inspiration began with coloring books and colored pencils. After completing a page using just three colors, she photographed the finished page in natural light, while creating movement with my camera.
“As a young photographer, I first immersed myself with only shooting and printing black and white photos,” Parker said. “Then came a time where I added hints of hand painted color to the black and white photographs.
Now as a not so young photographer, I find that this series of photographs like living life is always evolving. “The Year of Luminosity is a testimony to the many years of a life that is filled with brilliant colors, flowing movements and forever changing,” she noted.
The photographs on display will be for sale.
The exhibition will run until Dec. 30.
Visitors can also enjoy a docent-led tour of the Museum and see the incredible collection of historic artifacts and household items.
