On November 9 at the Boston University Photonics Center, more than 150 gathered to celebrate the PRC's 35th anniversary. Attending were a diverse group of people. Some were reconnecting with friends and colleagues from 35 years ago when Chris Enos first founded the PRC. Others were people who were connecting with the PRC for the first time. And many are PRC current members and supporters who came out for this festive event. More>>

Then/Now: Recent Work by PRC Founders Carl Chiarenza and Chris Enos
November 10, 2010 - January 9, 2011

Carl Chiarenza, Peace Warrior (Don Quixote) 188, 2003

In honor of the 25th anniversary of the PRC gallery and the 35th anniversary of the founding of the PRC, the PRC will honor two individuals who were instrumental in the PRC's history and photohistory in Boston, Chris Enos and Carl Chiarenza. Besides their intersecting history, lifelong careers in photo education, and mutual friendship, Enos's and Chiarenza's work shares aesthetic and conceptual affinities, including the use of recycled materials, the transformation and abstraction of the image, and references to painting and landscape. This show celebrates these two remarkable artists and individuals as well as the past and future of the gallery and the PRC itself.

In this workshop with renowned photographic artist Olivia Parker, participants will explore the development of image ideas as well as the technical possibilities in Photoshop that open the door to individual expression. This workshop will help participants address the transition from film to digital tools; however, some working knowledge of Photoshop will enable participants to gain the most from this workshop experience.

    Looking Back, #2
    Art of the State: Massachusetts Photographers, 1975-1977


    This book was published by the Massachusetts Arts and Humanities Foundation, Inc. in 1978, to acknowledge the recipients of its fellowships in three years of the program. Susan R. Channing was the editor, a natural fit given her role as the Artists Fellowship Program Director. Estelle Jussim wrote the Introduction, "Looking at Winners," and one of my favorite designers, Katy Homans, did the graphics and layout. It was printed by Thomas Todd Company in Boston.

    I was struck by a number of things when I read through this modestly-scaled paperback book, which spotlights the period in which the PRC was emerging on the Boston scene.
