Rock Work Photo Exhibit Opens at Slate Valley Museum

Friday, April 7, 2017 - 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


MacaulayLerman-TaranSlate-Rock-Work-SVMROCK WORK
, an exhibit opening at the Slate Valley Museum on First Friday, April 7 from 7-9pm, is a modern photo survey of what it is like to work in the slate industry today. Photos include incredible portraiture of people working in the quarries and mills and also breathtaking landscapes of the massive quarries themselves. The photographs were shot by local photographer Chuck Helfer and two Green Mountain College students Macaulay Lerman and Maggie Parson.

Lerman is a senior at GMC working towards a Fine Art degree with a focus in photography. Primarily, he is interested in the folklore and collected histories of the rural landscape, as well as its inhabitants. His work has been displayed in local galleries including the Photo Center of Troy New York. In addition to the Slate Valley Museum he also works with the Vermont Folklife Center.

Parson was born and raised in North Wildwood, NJ and is also a senior at GMC studying art and philosophy. She works in a variety of artistic mediums including analog photography. Maggie is passionate about using photography as a means of storytelling to have a positive impact of communities. Parson’s work was recently been shown at Stone Valley Arts.

The show was sponsored by Vermont State Quarry Association and Fred’s Pharmacy and will be up through the third week in May.
