We're all about discovery here at Long River. Come discover the works of more than 150 local artists and artisans — including new work by John Lehet of Hartland, VT showing through May 31. John's latest show of framed photography, Photography from Near and Far, captures the essence of Vermont and New Hampshire, and places further flung like Chicago and Iceland.
Wet Screen, Orange and Scarlet Begonias as pictured above, is just one of many of John's photographs now on display in our front gallery space. It represents a mixture of the creative beauty John captures, along with the permeability of light and texture that often go unnoticed in our surroundings. John tells us, "Since beginning with a view camera and large format film when I was a skinny young man in 1980, my photography has evolved in a steady arc. Over that time, my core concern has remained the same: I look for a resonance, a human response connecting to a natural situation. I want to look past surface concerns to find a deeper, less distracted emotional state. I make beautiful prints; sometimes beauty is enough, but I am trying to achieve something more."
Upcoming First Friday celebration on May 4, 2018 from 5:30 - 8:00 PM. John Lehet's remarkable photography remains up on our Artist of the Month Wall, so if you missed his show last month, please join us! People are making tracks to Long River for great locally-made (and world-class) art, photography, artisan craft, and gifts for all people and all occasions. Discover us for the thrill of a lifeltime. Unique, locally-made gifts for your family and friends (and to treat yourself, too!) will win the day!
Meadowlark, the musical duet of Bonnie and Howard also return to Long River for this FIrst Friday of May from 5:30 - 8:00 PM.
