Current Gallery Exhibits
Dave finds beauty all around, not where we ordinarily look, but right in front of us, reflected in the thousands of puddles, canals, and ponds that we tend to ignore. Many of the images, all taken since the Covid pandemic began, are both alluring as well as a warning that our environment is in peril. (on display in September)
Researched and designed by Carol Aleman, president of the Board of the Historical Society of Greenfield, this exhibit will serve as an introduction to some of the history of African-American families in Greenfield in areas such as music, sports, business, and military service. (on display through October.)
