Paul Hollister was a writer, lecturer, painter and photographer who resided in Hanover, NH during his later years. He is survived by his wife, Irene Hollister. During his lifetime, Paul’s paintings were shown at the Whitney Museum, the Galerie Apollinaire in London, the Montana Museum and in numerous exhibitions in other galleries. His work is in the collection of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Montana Museum, and many private and corporate collections.

In addition to his many professional accomplishments and other interests, Paul was very involved in photography and always had a camera with him. Even at an early age, Paul photographed the world around him and many of his other family members were amateur photographers as well. The focus of this exhibition at PHOTOSTOP will be to examine ways in which the mediums of photography and painting influenced each other in Hollister’s work. PHOTOSTOP Director Lia Rothstein and Irene Hollister have been working together for over a year researching Paul Hollister’s paintings, pastels. drawings, and photographs to curate this exhibition. This show will be the first time that his photographs and paintings have been exhibited together.
