Photographs by Laura Gilpin and Her Circle
October 7, 2017 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm| Free
When Laura Gilpin passed away in 1979 most of her negatives, photographs, and letters went to the permanent archive at the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, Texas. Three portfolios of photographs however were kept by her family. The Bennington Museum is fortunate to have this opportunity to share with the public a selection from these portfolios which include photographs by Gilpin herself as well as photographs given to Gilpin over her long career by friends and mentors, including Clarence H. White and Gertrude Käsebier. This exhibition of remarkable photographs will be on view in the Works on Paper Gallery of Bennington Museum from October 7 to December 30.
From 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. on October 7, join curator Jamie Franklin and Bennington College instructor Jonathan Kline for an opening reception of this remarkable exhibition. This event is free and open to the public.
