Hallmark opening this weekend

Three photographic exhibitions, embracing vastly different lives, opened March 20, 2008 at Hallmark Museum of Contemporary Photography. Linda Butler’’s "Meditations on Simplicity", at Gallery 56, is a photographic meditation on the architecture and objects of the Shakers, a religious sect that flourished in the eastern United States over a century and a half ago. Lili Almog’’s "Perfect Intimacy", an immersion into the cloistered worlds of three female Carmelite monasteries in Maryland, United States; Haifa, Israel; and Bethlehem, Palestine, opened at Gallery 52. Stella Johnson’’s "AL SOL", at Gallery 85, features images the artist created during nearly twenty years documenting the lives of families in rural Mexico, Nicaragua and the Cameroons, West Africa. All exhibits continue through June 15, 2008
