Yep, I’m it again, this time with an opening of my reinvented gallery next to my new Airbnb. October 16 is our opening so come along:
Photographer and author Peter Miller has reinvented his Waterbury gallery. Renamed The Squashed Gallery, photographs hang in rough formations on all walls. Miller’s award-winning books are also on display and they are bins of inexpensive prints.
The exhibition includes wine harvest photos taken in Margaux, France and street photography from Paris. Mr. Miller created the images in the 1950’s. On the opposite wall
are large color scenic and black and white portraits made in Vermont. The Paris photographs were published in his book, The First Time I Saw Paris. The wine harvest photographs have never been published.
The gallery is next to a four bedroom Airbnb that the photographer recently opened in his home. The Airbnb is unique as a library in the Airbnb includes the photographer’s collection of photograph books. On the wall of each bedroom are framed photos from the author’s archive.
“I plan,” said Mr. Miller, “to attract photographers and offer them packages that include lodging and photo tours of my favorite locations.” His photos have been exhibited in New York, Paris and Tokyo and the photographer-author will be signing his latest award-winning book, A Lifetime of Vermont People.
The opening is Friday, October 16, from 5:00 PM at 20 Crossroad, Waterbury, two houses south of Ben & Jerry’s. French wine, cheese and hors d’oeuvres will be served.
