First Friday Reception 4/5: A Night in Paris
April 5, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
First United Methodist Church of Boulder is delighted to welcome Richard Saxon’s photography exhibit, Art Through the Lens to our sanctuary gallery space through May 31, 2019. Rich will host a First Friday reception on April 5 from 6:00-9:00 PM. This special evening, which he’s calling A Night in Paris, will feature a number of Rich’s photographs of Parisian scenes. There is no admission charge, and everyone is welcome!
Rich describes his exhibit this way:
“I’m pleased to present my latest photography exhibit titled ‘Art Through the Lens.’ This show comprises an eclectic mix of images sourced from various settings, ranging from my home studio to international locations to which I have traveled. The show incorporates two elements of photography that I am passionate about: travel and still-life photography. I believe every photograph triggers a special memory for the viewer, creating a story unique to them. I hope my works achieve this story-telling, and also help viewers understand my story, and the fulfillment I experienced when creating each piece of work in the exhibit.”
At the First Friday reception on April 5, all of Rich’s photographs will be for sale, with 25% of proceeds benefiting FUMC’s upcoming intergenerational mission trip to Puerto Rico. The Youth will also serve French-themed refreshments, with donations supporting the Puerto Rico trip.
