The Collective C.R.I.T is taking over all eyes, and Earth. The series featured in Washington St. art gallery challenges viewers to partake in the knowledge of the real world and the experience of careful visual artists.

“The members are not just still photographers but also filmmakers, animation artists, graphic designers, and collage makers. In their photography, C.R.I.T. works with both film and DSLR, medium and large format,” says Kitty Etheridge, photographer and organizer.

Opening reception is Saturday, July 9, 2016 from 6-8 p.m. The exhibit will be on display July 9, 2016 to July 31, 2016 Saturdays from 12-4 p.m.

The photography whether it Chris Maliga’s black and white stunners or Traverse Day and Michael Powers’ introductions to soul, and poetry in motion. These are all worth the attendance to the opening reception, without doubt.

“In the series, Missing, Laura Miner creates the scene of a crime in miniature. Inspired by missing persons cases and unsolved murders, the close cropped shots create an eerie mood.  Are the images from the point of view of the victim, the crime scene photographer, or the perpetrator?” describes Kitty.

“Michael Powers’ photos present the isolation and detachment of home interiors and exteriors. Traverse Day Robinette explores the lack of connection between people and their environment,” provides Kitty.

“Somerville is a very art-centric city.  There is never a lack of subject matter with neighborhoods that are so vibrant and alive.  The close proximity to Cambridge only enhances this.  What’s really wonderful about Somerville is the art community is very supportive of all artists.  I’ve found plenty of room to create as the city and the world is my studio.  Since very little of what I do is actual photographed indoors the music I listen to is the beautiful, mosaic cacophony of city sounds.” says Kitty Etheridge.

“Beyond Here, There, and Now” as the exhibit is titled makes you ask questions about yourself and your environment that attests to the power of witness, careful enough to be aware from whimsy—but a little closer to home, in Somerville.
