Dina Kantor: Treece


Dina Kantor uses the finely developed skills of a journalist, documentarian, and artist to inform us of the lives, specificity, and texture of the residents of Treece who must now deal with the waste of the 20th century brought upon their doorstep.

Chris Enos: The Remaking of Boston
June 12 - August 31, 2012
Opening Reception: Tuesday, June 12, 6pm
Boston Society of Architects 
290 Congress Street, Boston, MA
Chris Enos, Untitled, 1976, Silver Gelatin Print, 16 x 20 inches.

The PRC presents Chris Enos: The Remaking of Boston, a series of 19 photographs by the artist and PRC founder Chris Enos. From 1975 to 1980, Enos documented her neighborhood, the Leather District and Fort Point Channel, at a time of tremendous urban revitalization in Boston. During this time, the historically industrial neighborhood transformed from gritty artist studios to the polished financial and cultural centers they are today. Chris Enos: The Remaking of Boston not only captures a portrait of Boston that would soon disappear, but also the process of urban revival. As such, this series is an important document of the architectural history of Boston at the moment of its remaking. 

Support the PRC Summer Appeal!

Following an extremely vibrant and busy season of programming at the PRC, summer is just around the corner. We are now deeply involved in planning our programs for the fall and the following spring. Highlights of fall programming include an exhibition featuring Rania Matar, our annual benefit auction, a lecture by Ernesto Bazan, and a pinhole camera workshop with Jesseca Ferguson.

Our largest source of revenue to support these programs is our annual auction in October, but that is still five months away. As we approach the summer, the PRC needs your support more than ever so that we can continue to plan and present the programs that have come to define the PRC. It is only through the generosity of individual supporters who believe in our work that the PRC can continue to be the leading center for creative photography in New England. 

Our goal, starting June 1, is to raise $20,000 in donations by August 31. Every contribution helps and every contribution is important. The PRC has been an integral part of the cultural fabric of this region for more than 35 years. Your support now will allow us to continue this important work of exploring, interpreting, and celebrating photography in New England.

From a submission pool of 270 photographers, Juror Alison Nordström selected ten artists for inclusion in EXPOSURE 2012.

The PRC's esteemed annual juried exhibition, EXPOSURE, honors emerging photographers from across North America by providing a venue to celebrate their work in a group show. Since its inception in 1996, over 300 photographers have displayed their images on the PRC's gallery walls. Each year, a respected member of the New England art
community--from curators to gallerists to photo editors--is asked to select ten to fifteen standout artists from a pool of several hundred. Each artist then shows five to ten photographs, adding up to a truly interesting exhibit each year.

We Want Your Photographs!
PRC 2012 Benefit Auction
Saturday, October 13, 2012 

Thanks to your generous donations to past auctions, the PRC has been able to sustain its leadership of the New England photo community. By participating, you have made exhibitions, lectures, workshops, portfolio reviews, Loupe, and other strong programming possible. We embrace this partnership with our members. With terms that encourage photographers to donate their strongest work, the PRC has established a viable new model for future auctions. Photographers can now keep up to 50% of the sale price and set their own reserve price up to 75%. The venue is exciting; where else in New England do 300 people come to look at, bid on, and purchase photographs--your photographs? For more than 25 years, the PRC Benefit Auction has been a showcase of the finest photography from New England and vintage prints donated by photographers, collectors, and galleries. We expect your selections for this year's auction to continue that tradition of excellence.

To donate a photograph, please send one jpeg of the image you would like to submit. If you prefer the Auction Committee to select your image, you can choose to send up to three jpegs.*

Visit out website for submission forms and more information on donating photographs to the auction >>

*In the interest of creating the strongest auction possible, the Auction Committee reserves the right to limit the number of pieces that are selected.
