Mac Hartshorn, Photographer

March 17 - April 28, 2013; April 13, 4 pm: Artist Talk

The Museum is pleased to open a new Upper Gallery art exhibit on the same day as Hoboken’s 3rd Sunday Gallery Walk, March 17, with “Mac Hartshorn, Photographer,” an exhibit of artistic photographs of babies and children by professional portrait photographer, Mac Hartshorn. The exhibit opens with a free reception from 2 – 5 pm, and all are welcome.

This exhibit consists of photos Hartshorn has taken for the art of the image, which usually results in something more abstract than a typical family portrait session. Describing his process, Hartshorn explains, “I approach the photo session being open to whatever happens. I want families to feel totally comfortable and interact naturally. That’s when the magic happens. Little toes or a baby’s tiny hand grasping a father’s finger can be appreciated by all, not just the parents.”

The artwork is both as unique as the people he’s taking pictures of, and universal enough to be appreciated by all. Please stop by on Sunday, or before April 28.
