Ken Bloom packed the Tweed for a “Tweevening.” Ken is a photographer who directs and occasionally curates shows, and as he retires, the Tweed is celebrating his medium.
“Space: Time and Place” is an exhibition of photographs selected from the Tweed collection which demonstrate ways photographers represent space and how such compositions influence the viewer to become invested in and moved by the image. The photograph can be an abstraction of the spatial dimension of time and place.
Ken will retire in June, but his effect on the arts community as an advocate and, through the Tweed, as a patron have been immeasurable.
