Photography by Astrid Reischwitz & David Zapatka
Exhibit: May 18 – June 10, 2017
Opening Reception: May 18 from 5:00 to 9:00pm
Astrid Reischwitz stitches the past, present and future together in her series of photographs titled Stories From the Kitchen Table. Each image combines a narrative motif from the family farm in rural Germany capturing a fading way of life – the potato harvest, hand embroidered linens and clothing, clotheslines and farmhouse sinks – with her retelling of the tales she heard at the kitchen table, the heart of family and village life, in composite photographs.
David Zapatka presents selections from his project Stars & Lights. In October 2103 he began a still photography project capturing lighthouses and the stars above on the darkest of dark nights during the monthly new moon phase. To date, David has managed extensive research, logistics, and gained cooperation from Coast Guard authorities, local harbormasters, and private landowners to gain access to well over 100 lighthouses in all six New England states as well as those in New York and New Jersey, many only accessible by boat.
PCPA is located in the Russell House (built in 1772) in downtown Providence, around the corner from the Providence Art Club and across the street from Mill’s Tavern Restaurant at 118 North Main Street, 2nd floor.
The gallery is open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 1:00 – 4:00 pm and by appointment. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (401) 400-2542 with any questions. Visit the gallery online. Find us on FaceBook and Twitter.
