An Exciting ArtWalk Weekend at The Newburyport Art Association

ArtWalk @ Sweethaven Studio - Meet the Artist - Cameron Sesto

Saturday, October 18th, 3-7 PM 

I have been an active participant in the fine arts for over 30 years and during this time I have authored four books and exhibited my photographs and paintings throughout New England. I have a degree from Rochester Institute of Technology, and even though I have worked in several art media, I always enjoy taking some time out to be behind the lens. In 2003 when I bought my first cellphone with a camera, I was amazed! However, when I went to print out my pictures, the quality of the color image was so poor, I wasn’t sure I could use them. Then I discovered changing the color image to duotone and found magic! These miniature blurry images remind me of peeking into a different reality. Perhaps I’ve captured a dreamscape? 

"Rebecca's Bench" By Cameron Sesto

Sweethaven Gallery also has many landscape images of Newburyport & Plum Island by local photographer Greg Nikas. Greg began his photographic career as a landscape photographer and shows his work exclusively at Sweethaven Gallery.

This ArtWalk Weekend at the Firehouse

Firehouse Center for the Arts features Emily Corbato's photography exhibit, "Glorious Women" in the Firehouse Art Gallery through September 7. Meet the Artist during ArtWalk on Saturday, August 16, 3:30 - 5:30 PM.
Corbato's black and white photography documents women from many parts of the world, all engaged in ordinary daily activities. The universality of women's lives is apparent: in a city in Peru, or New York, or Martha's Vinyeard; sewing, shopping, laughing, enjoying Plum Island, Disneyland or Coney Island, the location on the globe can change but the experience does not. 

Visitors will have an opportunity to write their creative profiles of the women, or stories or poems about them, and submit them to the Firehouse gallery, on paper or by email. A panel of editors will read them all and select the five best which will be made available on the Firehouse website.
