Pictures at an Exhibition

a beat photgrapher's celebrity images to be shown for a cause



Fred McDarrah, who died in 2007, was the lead photographer for The Village Voice for over 40 years. During that time he documented the rise of the Beat Generation, as well as New York City’s postmodern art movement. His images—of Jack Kerouac and Kerouac’s beatnik followers, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Andy Warhol, Allen Ginsberg, Robert Mapplethorpe, Susan Sontag, a campaigning Bobby Kennedy, and the first gay pride activists—defined the city, its artists, and politicians.

McDarrah was an activist and a true historian of his time. His images evoke a monumental period in New York’s art world. Now, thanks to the efforts of his son, Patrick, and his wife, Gloria, there will be an exhibition of some of his most memorable photographs from the 1960s and ’70s, along with a cocktail reception.

“One could call them portraits but not in the traditional sense. They are images shot by a news photographer trying to capture moments in time to illustrate a happening or a person for those that couldn’t be there,” says Patrick McDarrah. “He always said he was not an artist, but history may contradict that opinion.”

The show is being curated by Kathryn Mc­Carver Root, owner of KMR Arts Photography Gallery in Washington Depot, and author and photojournalist Peter Howe. The exhibition will benefit the Susan B. Anthony Project, an organization dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence.

The event will take place at the carriage house owned by antiques dealer Joseph Stannard in Norfolk, on September 30, 2011, at 5:30.
For more information about the project, contact Nancy Rogers, nrogers@sbaproject.org.

Hidden in Plain Sight

Treasure-hunters in search of world-class art may not think of Winstead, Connecticut, as a destination

From the Tower

In the mixed-media work he called "Premonition," Litchfield-based artist Donald Bracken painted a thumbnail-sized World Trade Center beneath a column of pale sky nearly five feet tall and a mere four inches wide.
