Come see our newest exhibition The Girls of Summer: Photographs by Melissa Ann Pinney. The show is hanging in the Bell Gallery Lobby through August 10.
Pinney takes photographs that explore notions of feminity at all ages. Many of the works in this exhibition document Pinney’s daughter, Emma, and her friends as they transition from girlhood to adolescence. Curator, and Bell Gallery Director, Jo-Ann Conklin notes, in these images Pinney “draws our attention to the childhood joy of tree climbing and the exuberance of a soccer match, and to quieter moments of friendship or contemplation.”
