OptOutside: Friends of Princeton Open Space Photography Exhibition

June 3 - June 29

 

Each year, Friends of Open Space holds a photo contest that kicks-off during their #OptOutside event the day after Thanksgiving, aka Black Friday, to encourage outdoor time enjoying nature rather than shopping indoors. This OptOutside Photo Exhibition is a culmination of captures from recent years of Princeton’s Billy Johnson Mountain Lakes Nature Preserve taken by amateur and professional photographers alike.

Travels: Domestic and aBroad

  When artists Krysia Kolodziej and Libby Ramage met in the early 1990s, Krysia was editing for Princeton University Press and writing poetry; Libby was starting her work teaching art to very young children while making and exhibiting her own art. Both inveterate savers of ephemera, they have been supporting each other’s art-making ever since.   Libby’s mixed media pieces–with painting and drawing using acrylics and charcoal–were created from a scrapbook originally compiled by her stepfather’s mother, Hilda, a formidable woman who reigned over her family
