    A collection of 42 documentary photographs by Major Morris. (1921-2016) His photos, mostly taken in Boston and Philadelphia during the 1960s, start with young children and take the viewer through older ages, finally reaching the Poor Peoples March of 1968 in Washington, D.C. But his emphasis is on the importance of nurturing children, on education, on encouraging a child to be the best that they can be. This fascinating exhibition is shown in our North Gallery till September 26th.

    Hours are 10 to 4, Thursdays to Sundays in May and June and Fridays to Sundays, July through September.

    Paintings by Sharif Carter. A collection of paintings featuring a flamenco dancer. Violating traditional methods, Sharif paints with an unusual technique of combining opaque watercolors with oil mediums on hand crafted wood panels which produce vivid imagery and mesmerizing fluidity as if subjects dance across canvas. The loose brush strokes and abstract guitars represent Sharif’s love of music and his defiance to follow traditional rules both in life and his painting technique.

    Opening reception with live painting by Sharif, October 2, from 5 to 7 pm.
