Each Photograph Tells a Story at the RAA
The Photography contingent of the Rockport art Association is having its 3rd Summer Show beginning with an opening reception on Sunday, July 24th from 2:00 to 4:00. The show runs through August 23rd.
This particular show has a theme called “STORIES”. Each contributing artist has provided a story associated with their photo submission. The story will be posted on the wall next to its photo. The viewer can learn something about what the artist was hoping to capture in the image and/or what the artist was experiencing at the time the image was created.
Stop by the Art Association during one of these sultry summer days and see some cool art. The R.A.A. is open Monday thru Saturday 10:00 ~ 5:00, and Sunday Noon ~ 5:00
This photo is called “View From The Old Sloop” by Tom Philbrook. The “story” for it goes like this:
“I’m afraid of heights, so I was quaking in my boots on that early July morning as I stood on the scaffolding in front of the Congo Church in the center of our village. The front of the church was getting a facelift at the time. This shot was (mostly) taken while standing directly in front of the clock of the Old Sloop.” — Tom Philbrook
