MAKERS • 365 Capital Region Creatives/Social Photographs by Richard Lovrich… presented in partnership with @albanycentergallery @creativeupstate
MAKERS began as a social media experiment as much as a body of work - #photographer @lovrich
of 365 creatives who reside in or have passed through the Capital Region. In this first phase, Lovrich shared each portrait on Instagram and Facebook to expose creatives to one another and the public, develop creative connections, and reinforce a positive message about the region’s creative economy. .
The second phase of MAKERS is a physical #exhibition
that will be displayed at @AlbanyCenterGallery
from June 20 to July 21. You will meet 365 fellow humans, vulnerable, guarded, cheerful or wistful in this portrait gallery of inspirational individuals who contribute in their own ways to the creative world around them. .
Join us on Wednesday, June 21 from 5pm to 9pm for an opening reception at ACG, and stay tuned for details on the MAKERS 365 CONNECTIONS panel discussions!
After the ACG exhibition closes on July 21, MAKERS, as coordinated by @creativeupstate
, will travel to exhibition locations within the Capital Region’s eight counties. The traveling exhibit model is inspired by the successful #BreathingLights
project that took place in 3 counties over 6 months in 2016-17. Building on that model, MAKERS will reach all eight Capital Region counties— #Albany, #Columbia, #Greene, #Rensselaer, #Saratoga, #Schenectady, #Warren,
each exhibit will be tailored to highlight the creatives who call each county their home. .
