William Steeple Davis the 2015 Exhibition in Swanson Gallery - Opens July 11th
Oysterponds artist William Steeple Davis (1884-1961) spent virtually all of his life in Orient. The Oysterponds Historical Society has an enormous amount of his work in various media, including photographs, most depicting Oysterponds and spanning more than half a century. Not only do these demonstrate his skill as a photographer, they also document Oysterponds in the first half of the twentieth century.
The exhibition will concentrate on his work in painting and photography beginning when he was thirteen years old, and presents a sampling of the subjects that interested him most. It is also extraordinary that he wrote more than six hundred articles about photography, and published a book Practical Amateur Photography.
