Fall River Portraits – 2017

JUNE 3, 2017 - JULY 14, 2017

Reception: JUNE 3, 2017 at 1:00 PM



This is the third Fall River Portraits Photography show. The exhibit features photographs of the people and neighborhoods by UMass Dartmouth and Diman Vocational Regional students, and winners of the “Nature in the City” photography contest.

“Making Things” ~ College and high school students have been visiting and photographing the production areas and workers in over 20 locally-owned businesses. Their photographs depict the making of everything from shirts, hats, uniforms, bags and jackets to nuts and bolts, machinery, furniture, mattresses, musical instruments, jewelry, and dental implants.

“Nature in the City” ~ This portion of the show will feature the contest’s prize-winning photographs, showcasing Fall River’s incredible, but often unseen, natural resources. People of all ages who either live, work, or go to school in Fall River are eligible to submit their images of natural beauty in the city. This contest is organized by the Friends of the Alfred J. Lima Quequechan River Rail Trail and UMass Dartmouth.
