About the Exhibition
In 2013, the Alfa Art Gallery decided to extend this program and add a third Salon to its calendar in the winter dedicated to showing the work of emerging and established photographers. With the addition of the third New Brunswick Art Salon, each of the three will be dedicated to a different medium of art.
The photography salon has been designed in collaboration with New Brunswick City Market in order to cover the greatest interest of different organizations looking for professional photographs of New Brunswick. The archive will capture the diverse cultures and demographics of the city in a moment in history.
Opening Reception: January 10 @ 7-10pm
Exhibition Duration: January 10 -29, 2013
