Sheffield: Exhibit contemporizes Rockwell's original works

Posted

Berkshire School Art Gallery will present "Revisiting Rockwell" by award-winning Chicago-area photographer and Berkshire School graduate Maggie Meiners from Jan. 18 to March 5 in the school's Warren Family Gallery.

The body of work was inspired by the recent revelation that Norman Rockwell's cover illustrations for The Saturday Evening Post were created using staged photographs as studies.

Meiners attempts to contemporize Rockwell's original works by weaving into each photograph social issues and elements that resonate today.

Berkshire School is located at 245 North Undermountain Road. Information: 413-229-1390.
