November 11, 2017
This show is the result of a series of creative re-inventions. Esther Pullman '64 trained as a graphic designer but made a self-directed mid-career transition to photography which itself morphed from a hands-on, craft-based discipline to a computer-based digital process. This series of large-scale greenhouse images, began as an intuitive and visceral effort to bring light and life into my own home, as I anticipated the darkening seasons, gradually took on a more symbolic and metaphorical meaning in the face of our increasingly imperiled home planet. Exhibition open to public Monday-Friday, Sept. 8 to Jan. 8, 2018
