Coor- dinated by Matthew Wysocki, Professor of Art in Dart- mouth, the exhibition features images from a photographic journey to a family summer home on a lake in Wisconsin and documents the photographer's childhood summers there, as she remembers it and as it looks today. "Eleanor Briggs makes a powerful statement about that mysterious process of recollection," said Wysocki. "Her photographs are very personal yet they have a universal appeal." Briggs says she was trying to recreate the feeling of being somewhere that was both familiar and strange all at once. In her statement about the exhibition she has written, "This place had been in my dreams all these years and when I saw the boathouse again, I knew that I knew what that sunflooded upstairs room looked like inside. The black and yellow-white linoleum squares in the kitchen assured me I'd been there before, too. I had built moss gardens in the middle of the dining room table but the mirror which served as our lake was gone now. Things were different but the same. Wandering outside, the smell of phlox or the af- ternoon sun on the ferns would trip my memory and a blurred figure or shaded path would return to mind. I have gone hack every summer for five years, drawn by the struggle photographs. She has focused her camera on the timeless, tranquil beauty of her setting and produced pictures of morning fog on the lake, summer sun streaming through lush flora or the screens on the porch, and the cool refreshment of the to comprehend the workings of my own memory. These photographs are from my continuing notebook of this exploration. With them I at- tempt to mark points along the way and to express something of the strangeness of my remembering." Briggs' photos capture leisurely relaxation going on side by side with the domestic routines of a family at the lake. She has photographed a game of croquet on the water's edge, a picnic in the woods, a swimmer mid-lake poised for a stroke and a plunge off the pier, a close-up of a catch of trout, a birthday party on the lawn and other playful scenes with people enjoying the lazy warmth of summer. Interspersed with these, are shots of a formal table glittering with china, glasses, and silver, towels drying on the line or heaped in waiting lakeside, and fresh white linens being whipped into place by a competent bedmaker. Also notable in the exhibition are Briggs' nature shadows and shade in the forest that bring back delightful memories of summer for the viewer. Briggs' photographs have previously been exhibited at the Ava Gallery in Hanover, the Vermont Artisans Gallery in S. Stratford, the St. Botolphe Club in Boston and at Haverford College. Born in New York, she has a B.A. from Sweet Briar College and she has studied with Ralph Gibson, Charles Harbutt, Duane Michals, and Ralph Steiner. She regularly photographs the Concord String Quartet and the Apple PARKINSON'S DISEASE SUPPORT GROUP LYME--Interested persons in seeing such a group started in this area should contact Marilyn Valley at 603-795-2472 any morning for more in- formation.
