Staff News -- Best Wishes and New Arrivals

We wanted to share some news with you. As of the start of the new year, Laura Norris, Membership & Communications Manager at the PRC will be moving on to pursue a new position at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum as Development Operations Coordinator. Laura began at the PRC in 2009 as an intern and joined the staff in spring 2010. Over the past four and a half years, she has held numerous positions at the PRC while also completing her Masters in Arts Administration at Boston University. Laura did the job of an army of administrators while also handling design and communications responsibilities. She also served as Copy/Production Editor of Loupe and was an integral part of New England Portfolio Reviews. She was able to manage all of this with an impeccable sense of organization. In July 2013, Laura was promoted into the position of Communications & Membership Manager. During this time, Laura not only handled membership activities but also took over execution of programming, such as lectures, workshops, and PRC Nights, as well as the PRC 2013 Gala. Managing the logistics of this important PRC event is no easy feat, and Laura did a masterful job as Gala Chair. The 2013 Gala was extremely successful as a result. On a more personal note, those of us at the PRC who have gotten to know Laura will miss her kind spirit, strength of character, unrivaled attention to detail, eagerness to learn, and dedication to the arts. She will be dearly missed at the PRC, but we wish her well in her new position!

Please help us welcome our newest addition to the PRC, Mariah Azoti! A photographer and MassArt graduate, Mariah has interned at the PRC and Panopticon Gallery. While working at the PRC, she was an essential part of the team that worked on the PRC's spring fundraising event. Mariah is our Communications, Technology, & Administration Coordinator. We are very fortunate to have her and look forward to working with her!

NEPR Showcase

November 14 - December 20, 2013 
PRC Gallery, 832 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA
Co-presented by Griffin Museum of Photography & Photographic Resource Center
From the 54 photographers who registered for the NEPR Portfolio Walk, the staff of the Photographic Resource Center and the Griffin Museum of Photography selected six artists to exhibit in this year's iteration of the NEPR Showcase. We were all thrilled with the creative, dynamic, and inspiring photographs on display during the Portfolio Walk. This exhibition, team curated by the PRC and Griffin staff, is just another way that we continue promote the talented photographers of New England!

Vivian Maier: A Woman's Lens
October 6 - December 18, 2013
Women's Studies Research Center, Brandeis University
515 South Street, Waltham, MA
The PRC is proud to co-sponsor the Vivian Maier exhibition and programming at the Women's Studies Research Center at Brandies University. 
Since the discovery of her negatives in a Chicago storage locker in 2007, Vivian Maier (1926-2009) has garnered international attention for her poignant street photography, almost none of which she printed during her lifetime. Including street scenes from Chicago and New York in the 50s and 60s, as well as striking self-portraits, Vivian Maier: A Woman's Lens will be the first showing of the mysterious photographer's work in the Greater Boston area. Don't miss this opportunity to view a rare talent whose rich, and little-known, life story is still unfolding.

The Leopold Godowsky, Jr. Color Photography Awards honor the co-inventor of Kodachrome film. Established by the Godowsky family in 1987 and held every four years, the awards recognize "achieved excellence in color photography." 
Focusing on emerging and under-recognized artists and new approaches to color photography, the 2014 Godowsky Color Awards were granted on the basis of the strength and originality of the photographic work. The 2014 awards were international and open to artists working in any form of color photography. 
Though Kodachrome was discontinued shortly before the previous Godowsky Color Awards in 2009, the PRC recognizes the legacy of Godowsky and celebrates the diverse and innovative approaches to color photography today. 
The PRC is supported by numerous individual donors and in part by:
