Savings Bank Of Walpole Helps Support NH Now Photography Book And Exhibitions Of Life In The Granite State
Keene, NH — Savings Bank of Walpole is proud to help sponsor NH Now, a collaborative effort between the New Hampshire Historical Society and the New Hampshire Society of Photographic Artists that portrays current life in New Hampshire through photography. The curated collection will be presented in a limited-edition book, available for purchase beginning October 1, as well as in a series of simultaneous exhibits at locations across the state starting on the same date. Locally, the Historical Society of Cheshire County will be hosting one of the exhibits.
“As a truly local bank, supporting local people, businesses and organizations in our communities is at the heart of our mission,” says Mark Bodin, President for Savings Bank of Walpole. “We’re proud to help sponsor NH Now – a special project that celebrates and helps support our local artists – and one that will also provide art and education opportunities here in Cheshire County and across the state.”
With more than 55 accomplished photographers involved, New Hampshire Artist Laureate Gary Samson curated the project, selecting from over 10,000 photographs submitted. The photographs depict all aspects of contemporary life in the state, from natural and built environments to current events and people going about their daily lives. The resulting photographic archive will be held in the permanent collections of the New Hampshire Historical Society and will be a powerful historical resource for future generations.
