Description

Images of the Homeless and Those Who Help Them

The Gallery at Firehouse SquarE is presenting a special exhibition depicting the personal side of homelessness through the lens of photographer Alex Matthiessen and the palette of oil painter Elisabeth McGinn.  Entitled “Right Next Door: Images of the Homeless and Those Who Help Them,” the exhibit features the artwork of two women, Alex and Elisabeth, who met as soup kitchen volunteers and share a deep belief in the need to give back.  The show will also include poems and artwork created by some of the homeless subjects that Alex and Elisabeth have photographed and painted over the years.  All artwork in the exhibit will be for sale, with 100% of the proceeds donated to The Homeless Hospitality Center of New London and St. Vincent de Paul Place in Norwich.  THE GALLERY is also accepting donations of canned foods, clothes, hygiene and feminine products, socks, and underwear.

 

“Right Next Door” starts on March 10 and runs through March 27.  Guests will have an opportunity to meet and greet the artists during an opening reception on Saturday, March 16 from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The opening reception will feature a silent auction where guests will be able to bid on select works, and a special documentary film produced by the Video Production Class of East Lyme High School will be shown. Students, Kaley Roberts and Elizabeth Heaney, along with their teacher, Grant Place, will showcase a 15-minute video that reveals the daily happenings at the New London Hospitality Center and Shelter with interviews of staff members and homeless people.
