Celebrating CLICK Workspaces Second Anniversary on Market St., Northampton



WHAT: CLICK Workspaces Second Anniversary on Market St., Northampton
WHEN: Friday, May 11th from 6 to 8pm
WHERE: CLICK Workspace 9 ½ Market St., Northampton, MA

CLICK Workspace is celebrating its second anniversary of being located on Market St. Kicking off the celebration, CLICK is proud to announce its first photography shows, Where We Are and True Places.

On the first floor, Where We Are is a 90-piece exhibition of photographs that explores the idea of place and being. Through their own artistic lense and interpretation, six photographers capture the notion of where we are as a society, physically, politically, socially and emotionally. All of the artists share their perspectives and commentary on the world through social media and were selected for their strong Instagram presence. Their online reach is indicative of where we are technologically and how it can bring us together as a society, even from very remote parts of the globe. The artists featured in this show include:

Melissa Cooper (@lilmisswhimsypix)

“I am absolutely in LOVE with color, I have a healthy respect for humor and I'm always looking for the next new photo challenge.”

Andy Castillo (@visual_musings)

“No matter where I go, my heart is always here, in my Pioneer Valley home. It's tethered to the fertile soil that rolls up from the glistening Connecticut River into surrounding hills.”

Dawa Drolma (@dawadrolma)

“We are in a small valley called Menshod located on The Roof of the World. We are a Tibetan community with a population of around 6,300 people who are agro-pastoralists.”

Jeff Kelley (@postaljeff)

“I love living in the Pioneer Valley, and it’s hard to believe that when we moved our family here fourteen years ago, we knew little to nothing about the area. In some ways, I still feel like a tourist, trying to find new places I have yet to explore. ”

Gabrielle K. Murphy (@goldilocksoftheshire)

“Though my subjects may vary, I am steadfast in that my ultimate goal is to convey a sense of energy that represents not only what I saw, but also what was felt.”

Darren Port (@greeninspires)

“Composed over the past few years, mostly in the Valley, from marches and rallies, or other social and community gatherings, the photographs in the show explore where we are in a social-political context."

The third floor galleries of CLICK will be hosting Pamela Cobb’s True Places. Cobb’s photographs feature the intimate spaces of the east coast, and the dramatic and vast open spaces of the west. The artist’s intention “... is to make images that are simultaneously specific and universal, referring to a sense of place in the land that could be anywhere.”

All pieces will be available for purchase; proceeds will benefit the artist and the Art Program at CLICK. The opening reception for this show will be held on Friday, May 11th from 6 to 8pm at CLICK Workspace (9 ½ Market St., Northampton, MA 01060). Light refreshments and drinks will be served.
