Heritage Commission Sponsors Student Photo Exhibit

On Sunday, December 18, 2016 a reception will be held from 2:00 — 4:00pm at the Peterborough Townhouse for the Heritage Commission’s new photography exhibit “Our Town through Our Eyes: Photographs by Students of Conval High School.”

Every student from ConVal Regional High School’s Photography and Video Arts courses submitted photos for the exhibit. The assignment was to “photograph the architecture of Peterborough.” Students were left to interpret this in any way they saw fit. Some photographed the school itself, others took images of well-known Peterborough buildings, and some chose to photograph at night.

The 20 photos which comprise the exhibit were selected by Photo/Video Arts Teacher Amanda Bastoni for their creativity, visual appeal, and adherence to the goal of the assignment. After completing the assignment students critiqued one another’s work and discussed which images they felt best exemplified the architecture of Peterborough.

“I am so proud of the work they did,” said Bastoni, “We are grateful to the town of Peterborough and the Heritage Commission for creating this opportunity, which gave the students a chance to practice submitting work, meeting a deadline, and seeing their images publicly displayed.”

The photographs will be on exhibit in the entry hall of the Townhouse through the end of March.
