Then and Now: The Enduring Allure of Light in Photography September 10 – October 6 Featuring The Work Of Locals Judith Montferrante and Michael Sief


The Copley Society of Art is proud to host a national juried photography exhibition titled Then and Now: The Enduring Allure of Light in Photography, featuring images selected by famed photographer Joel Meyerowitz. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, September 15, from 5:30pm-7:30pm at the Copley Society on 158 Newbury Street, Boston.*
Then and Now: The Enduring Allure of Light in Photography features an array of photographic techniques including silver print, ultra chrome pigment print, and platinum print. The use of light as a key element unites the works, which portray a variety of subjects and styles. The artists represented in the exhibition not only demonstrate a talented selection of the Copley Society’s members, but also extend far beyond the organization’s immediate artist community.
Distinguished photographer Joel Meyerowitz selected a diverse group of photographs, including both color and black and white images. Meyerowitz is renowned for his natural landscapes, cityscapes, and perhaps most notably for the moving images taken at Ground Zero. Having celebrated color photography since the 1960s, the photographer has been featured around the world, from the Art Institute of Chicago to the Centre Pompidou in France. In addition, his photographs have garnered international recognition through numerous prestigious awards.
The Copley Society of Art (Co|So), America’s oldest non-profit organization, is committed to the advancement, enjoyment, and promotion of its member artists and the visual arts. The organization, founded in 1879, comprises juried artists who are selected by a credentialed art committee. Co|So provides artists with a gallery for exhibiting and selling their work and a platform for engaging and educating the community.
The show will be on display from September 10th through October 6th. The Copley Society of Art is located at 158 Newbury Street in Boston. The gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday 11-6, Sunday 12-5, and Monday by appointment.
* All members will be admitted free of charge, and non-members will be asked to pay a fee of ten dollars to support the gallery’s outreach program.
