We have a special show planned, featuring one of Grafton's very own - Cindy Rubenstein!
She has a deep interest in photography, which actually began when as a child, she would look at black and white photos and Polaroid snapshots in her parents' photo albums. She would look at the pictures and realized that behind this photo which represented a mere second of life captured in time, there was a whole story. Those stories were gateways between generations.
She would imagine what a house long gone looked like or how people who she had never met, may have interacted with one another.
Her photos are of seemingly ordinary moments with what are, to her, actually extraordinary moments that developed off camera.
Although Cindy's favorite camera is her Nikon, it soon became apparent that it is easier to capture moments in a split second on something most people have with them quite often...their phone. All the photos in this show were taken with Cindy's iPhone X in West Virginia, New Hampshire, and California, which are three of her favorite places to be!
Born and raised in Grafton, Cindy has been a professional counselor for 20 years. She lives with her husband, Shawn and her two children, Elias and Violet in Grafton.
The reception for Cindy's show will be held on Friday April 1 from 6-8pm, at the Gallery 62 West! Please stop by and visit with Cindy and enjoy an amazing show - one that will open the Gateways to ideas and imagination.
