Marie Hartig Kendall: Historic Photographs
Dates: 1/24/16 – 2/29/16
Marie Hartig Kendall was a pioneering photographer who documented Norfolk around the turn of the 20th century. Kendall exhibited her work at the Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893 and won an award for her technical ability and artistic expression. Still in their original oak frames, her stunning enlargements of landscape and farm scenes are on loan from the Norfolk Historical Museum. At the opening reception, on Sunday, January 24th at 4:00 pm curators Ann Havemeyer and Dianne Pierce will be joined by photo historian Michaela Murphy in a discussion that places Kendall and her technique in an historic context. Prints processed by Michaela from Kendall’s original glass plate negatives will be for sale.
