TWENTY ARTISTS OF WORCESTER:
Worcester County’s latest contribution to the Art World hits Bookstores in November
Scott Erb of Worcester’s own Erb Photography is releasing his book, Twenty Artists of Worcester during an exhibiting and book signing on November 14, 2008.
The project, which was funded by an Individual Grant from the Worcester Cultural Commission, highlights 20 of Worcester’s most talented artists.
“It was hard to believe after meeting so many creative people in the area that there was so little publicity,” Erb said. Taking matters into his own hands, he began his own creative journey to document—through photography and text—20 of the most sought after artists in Worcester County in their personal studios. “I wanted to meet with and collaborate with them in order to create interesting images…images that could tell a little bit about them as artsy people living and working in the area.”
Scott will be able—with the help of assistant Donna Dufault and writer Julie Grady—to show off these hidden and not-so-hidden gems in an exhibition that showcases not only his newly-published book, but the artists and their works featured in the project as well.
After months of hard work, Erb Photography is pleased and proud to announce the opening and book signing will take place November 14th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at The Davis Art Gallery on the third floor of the Printers Building on 44 Portland Street in Worcester. The show will close on January 23, 2009.
