Portrait Art Photo Sessions - Guttenberg Branch
Portrait Art Photo Sessions - Guttenberg Branch

Guttenberg residents are invited to participate in FREE Portrait Art Photo Sessions at the Guttenberg Resource Center. 

Over the course of the summer, artist Elisabeth Smolarz will chronicle the lives of local residents by creating intimate object-based "still-life" portraits of them. This project will cumulate in a collective portrait of our diverse community that will be featured in a book and travelling exhibition. Participating residents will receive a free copy of their portrait. This project is brought to you by Guttenberg Arts and is sponsored in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and Mayor Wayne D. Zitt Jr. and Guttenberg Town Council.

RSVP to schedule your Photo Session. Call (201) 868-2315 Ext 138 or email trivera@nbpl.org.
