Excursion to Fishers Island to see this years Annual Exhibition, 'Fishers Island, Naturally', complemented by two special exhibitions
Come 'on! We're going to Fishers Island to see the new shows.
This years Annual Exhibition, 'Fishers Island, Naturally', complemented by two special exhibitions, celebrates the natural history of Fishers Island, primarily through the lens of contemporary photography, with a focus on both habitats and the diverse species that utilize and/or occupy them.
We're going Mondays, August 2 and 30 -- taking the ferry, seeing the shows, stopping for lunch, then toodling around the island. Sign up today.
View the new 'Photographers of Fishers Island, Part One, 1880s to 1930s' exhibition, curated by Pierce Rafferty, at the Henry L. Ferguson Museum. This year's exhibition celebrates the work of the first photographers of Fishers Island. Some were professional, some amateur, but together they provide a multi-faceted portrait of all aspects of island life.
