Panopticon Gallery Opens Show with a Party!
Panopticon Gallery at the Hotel Commonwealth hosted a party for the artists in its new Summer Group Exhibition Extravaganza, which features a few new, unfamiliar faces. One of them is Orianna Reardon, a recent New England School of Photography grad who used the new instant film produced by the Impossible Project to create some of her self-portraits. (The Impossible Project saved the last Polaroid production plant for instant film and created new instant film materials for traditional Polaroid cameras.) Others at the party were Panopticon owner Jason Landry, collector Jim Fitts, Griffin Museum of Photography executive director Paula Tognarelli, Photographic Resource Center executive director Glenn Ruga, and photographers Peter Vanderwarker, Dominic Chavez, Ron Cowie, Stella Johnson, and Gustav Hoiland.
