Misfits – A collection of photographs that don’t quite fit
In the latest show at the Shutter Room on Rust Ave photographers Chris Schreuder, Diane Stoppard, Ellen Smith, Grant Beran, Lisa Clunie and Marg Morrow have come together to create a different sort of group exhibition.
These photographers work across the spectrum of photography from fine art, to education and commercial work and normally they would be required to carefully select a cohesive group of images that are conceptually and/or visually bound together. Instead, for Misfits, they have been challenged to find the images that they love but have never fitted in! Diane Stoppard explains that “often in our photographic practice we work with intent and so some images become misfits – successful in their own right but not part of a set. This exhibition is a collection of these outsiders”.
The Shutter Room is unable to hold an opening during this COVID lockdown level but the doors of the gallery at the back of the Old Library on Rust Ave, Whangārei are open 4 days a week, so please drop in to view this exciting installation of ‘photographic misfits’.
Open Wed-Fri 12-4pm/Sat 10am-1pm. See here for event info.
Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow – 17th September – 24th October
