Hallmark Museum Announces Expansion

|

George J. Rosa III, Founder and President of Hallmark Museum of
Contemporary Photography
has announced that the museum will expand its
exhibition, archive and exhibit preparation spaces in January 2008.

The new facilities, in the historic Crocker Bank Building at the
entrance to the renaissance district of downtown Turners Falls,
Massachusetts, will provide three new galleries, an exhibit mounting
and framing area, staff quarters, a photographic book shop and an
archive room for study of the museums permanent collection.

Paul Turnbull, Executive Director, says, "This expansion will more than
double our current exhibition capabilities, allowing us to show an even
greater range of contemporary photography. We'll also be able to
feature vibrant and significant work by photographers young in their
careers, students, and other underrepresented artists, as well as theme
and group exhibitions."

Mr. Rosa plans to devote the next six months to remodeling the lower
floor of the 1860's's building for museum uses, aiming for a post-New
Year grand opening. He says, "This undertaking is one of the most
exciting and rewarding ventures of my life. It allows me to give even
greater recognition to the important role that photography and
photographers play in our daily lives. And, I believe it will be good
for the greater Turners Falls community that has been so kind to me for
so many years."

Hallmark Museum of Contemporary Photography is located at 85 Avenue A,
downtown Turners Falls, Massachusetts. Regular museum hours are
Thursday through Sunday, 1-5 p.m. All events are free and open to the
public.
