Simon Sarris in the Carnegie Gallery, “Sarris is prone to street photography, "When I find a good photograph in the wild and take it, it is like finding treasure. Usually when I take a photograph I feel like I am capturing or taking something (stealing) from the world. A small moment of time that I have bottled up. It almost makes me feel guilty. But I love the natural and the humanistic world and all its moments, and I love them so much I want to show them to you. These are moments in Portugal that I have found for you."

Lauder began collecting photographs over 40 years ago, visiting the studios of other artists whenever possible and finding community and friendship through photography—both as an artist and an admirer of the works of others. An active participant in the Maine Photographic Workshops (now the Maine Media Workshops) in Rockport, she began swapping photographs with friends she met there in the 1970s and ‘80s…Artist’s Choice presents highlights from Lauder’s collection, including prints of some of the most celebrated images of the 20th century.

Juxtapositions by Jean Stimmell, “Mr. Stimmell says that the theme for this exhibit “came to me by accident, after noticing that certain of my images – those which spoke strongest to me – also spoke directly to a particular other of my photographs, even though the two were often separated by subject, time, and space. It is my feeling that pairing them together – putting them in juxtaposition—increases the ambience and narrative power of both.” Epsom Public Lirbary, 1606 Dover Road, Epsom, NH, www.epsomlibrary.com
