PRESS RELEASE: Photostop opens in White River Junction

Lia Rothstein announces that she has recently opened PHOTOSTOP in the Tip Top Media Arts Building in White River Junction, Vermont. PHOTOSTOP is located on the first floor in Suite 150 at 85 North Main Street.

Lia created PHOTOSTOP as a place dedicated to showing, teaching, and sharing photography in response to the closing of so many photography-related places in the Upper Valley and throughout New England. She would welcome your input into the kinds of workshops you’d
be interested in attending and the exhibition topics in which you’d be most interested. Upcoming planned exhibitions include the works of Jonathan Bailey and Sara Wight (December), Cynthia Beth Rubin, Olivia Parker, and other photographers.

PHOTOSTOP’S inaugural exhibition, “Wheat, An American Series”, with photographs by Neal Rantoul, will open on October 23rd with a reception from 6-9 pm and a gallery talk at 7:30 pm. Rantoul is the director of the Photography Program at Northeastern University in Boston and a widely exhibited and published photographer. His work is held in the collections of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Fogg Museum at Harvard, the Kunsthaus in Zurich, the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, the Biblioteque Nationale in Paris, and many others.

In conjunction with the exhibition, Rantoul will be teaching a workshop titled “Series Work: Beyond the Single Image” on October 24 and 25, from 10-4 pm.

On November 14, Lia Rothstein will be teaching a workshop on “How to Create Your Own
Photo or Art Book”. For registration information, please contact her at 802.698.0320.

PHOTOSTOP Gallery will be open from 2-9 pm for a sneak preview during White River Junction’s October 2nd First Friday celebration. Once the Rantoul exhibit has opened, the gallery hours will be Wednesday through Saturday from 2-8 pm. On First Friday sand opening nights, the gallery will be open until 9 pm.
