This Month's Feature Show

Reception Saturday, November 13 from 2 – 4 pm

The ARTery Gallery in Milford is excited to announce two special featured exhibits in November that are in co-operation with important local institutions – The Delaware Highlands Conservancy and Pike County Historical Society.  Both exhibits highlight different aspects of our region through photography.

 

The Delaware Highlands Conservancy works in partnership with landowners and communities to protect the natural heritage and quality of life of the Upper Delaware River region.  Throughout the summer of 2021, the Conservancy held its fourth annual juried photo contest, "Confluence: Land, Water, Wildlife”.  The contest invited local photographers to capture striking nature photos from the Upper Delaware River region in five categories: landscape, wildlife, macro, water, and a youth category for photographers under 18.  In this fourth annual exhibit at the gallery, the winning photography (both amateur and professional) are framed and displayed for the public to enjoy, while getting to know about the important work of the DHC organization. The public is invited to meet the photographers and DHC staff at the opening reception on Saturday, November 13 from 2 – 4 pm. The winning photographs are also available for viewing on the Conservancy’s Facebook page.  “Meeting the photographers and sharing their work with visitors who thoroughly enjoy the beautiful images of our region is a high point of our yearly exhibit schedule” says gallery curator Marie Liu.

 

“No Dull Days in Milford” is an exhibit of historic photography by a local photographer of note.  J. Alfred Myer’s photographs reflect small-town America via Milford in the decades surrounding the turn into the 20th century.  Myer lived in Milford for over 40 years and his photographs capture Americans embracing the challenges and progress of this vibrant time—a time of changes in technology, economics, business, met with a fair amount of frolic and merriment.

 

Growing up in Cuddebackville, NY – one of 14 children, Alfred and his brothers worked in a stone quarry on their property, then loaded the flagstone on boats for transport on the nearby D&H Canal.  At 34, he married Emma Van Etten and in 1885 they bought a plot of land in the Boro of Milford.  He put up a tent on his property on W. Harford St., using it as a studio to start out his photography business.  The old-time processes he employed were tintypes, glass negatives and paper prints, platinum pictures (cut a dime in half and dissolved in chemicals) and Ding Dong pictures with a camera that had 4 lenses that were a little larger than 1-inch square.

 

Pike County Historical Society will be loaning their collection of reproductions of Myer’s photographs for this special exhibit, all of which are portraits of local folk and visitors who came to stay at the resorts and enjoy the natural treasures around Milford.

 

Myer’s biography and eighty of his photographs can be enjoyed in the book “No Dull Days in Milford”, published by his grandson Peter Livingston Myer in 2016. A copy of that book will be available for viewing during the exhibit.

 

The co-operative gallery invites you to join them at their location in the historic Forest Hall building to enjoy these memorable exhibits as well as the ongoing displays of fine artwork by its members.
