The Westport Book Shop is pleased to welcome local photographer Jerri Graham as guest exhibitor for the month of September 2022, at the Book Shop’s Drew Friedman Art Place.
Jerri is exhibiting a series of photographs that showcase the flora and fauna of Westport's Wakeman Town Farm.
Jerri's exploration of photography began as a young girl, when she learned how to use photographic darkroom equipment with her father, and they experimented with developing images she had taken "with the click of a button and a playing of light." "I learned control: Control of skill, equipment, timing and ingredients so perfectly woven to create images," said Jerri.
Westport's Wakeman Town Farm Sustainability Center is a organic demonstration homestead established in 2009, dedicated to educating the community through local healthy food production, responsible land stewardship, sustainable practices, and community service orientation.
You can see the exhibit of Jerri's work at the Westport Book Shop, located at 23 Jesup Road, right across Jesup Green from the Westport Library. The art exhibit is open to the public during the Book Shop’s regular business hours: Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10am to 6pm, and Sundays from Noon to 5pm (closed Mondays).
Jerri's photography will be on display through September 30, 2022. All artwork on exhibit is available for purchase.
The Book Shop’s “Drew Friedman Art Place” is an area of the store dedicated to exhibiting the work of community artists year-round, on a rotating basis. Miggs Burroughs, a Trustee of the Drew Friedman Community Arts Center, and a founding member of The Artists Collective of Westport, is curating the Book Shop's art exhibits, which change monthly.
