Photographs by Richard Lovrich @ Albany Center Gallery

Opening at Albany Center Gallery, “Makers” is an exhibition of 365 portraits by photographer Richard Lovrich, who captured the essence of inspirational individuals who contribute to the creative world around them, all of whom reside in or have passed through Greater Nippertown.

Some you’ll recognize. Some may be your neighbors. Some you may have yet to discover. But they’re all talented artists and makers, movers and shakers from the worlds of theater, literature, music, visual art, journalism, television, comedy, radio, dance, film and beyond…

The opening reception for the exhibit, which remains of view at ACG through Friday, July 21, takes place from 5-8pm on Wednesday (June 21). Admission is free.

In conjunction with the exhibition, Albany Center Gallery will also host four live panel discussions (one each week of the exhibition), which will offer insight into the minds and lives of our creative community.

Once this show closes at ACG, the exhibition will travel on to locations in seven more Greater Nippertown counties. More information available here.
