On Friday, Sept. 2, the Farnsworth Art Museum’s Julia’s Gallery for Young Artists will hold an open studio from 5 to 7 p.m., during the city’s First Friday Art Walk. This event will take place at Julia’s Gallery on the corner of Union and Elm streets and is free to the public.

Over the course of the summer, these talented young photographers have been surveying and experimenting with the conceptual side of art in a 10-week photography program called Outside the Frame. Their ideas and photographic sketches are presented as works in progress including hand-made books, prints and video/stills. The participating young photographers include Fiona Boyd, Abby Billington, Tonya Bartlett, Hannah Sirois, Rachel Borch, Ben Shepherd, Colby Hill, Autumn Coyle, Jewelia Dickinson, Katie Pratt and Carman Lamb. The summer workshop was lead by artist-educator Deanna Witman.

Julia’s Gallery for Young Artists is an award-winning, after-school and summer teen arts program of the Farnsworth Art Museum. The hands-on studio program partners teens with mentor artists working in a variety of media with a recent emphasis on film, photography and new media. The gallery space allows teens to showcase their artwork in a self-directed and professional setting. Most Julia’s Gallery programs are free of charge.
