No Dull Days: J. Alfred Myer’s Turn-of-the-Century America

Exhibition Website

Jun 9 2017 - Sep 23 2017

Portrayals and artwork of the Gilded Age of the 1920s often features glitz and glamour. No Dull Days: J. Alfred Myer’s Turn-of-the-Century America takes a different picture—literally. Photographer J. Alfred Myer spent years capturing life in his small hometown of Milford, Pennsylvania. His photographs record a time of great chance and progress, as well as the quirks of small-town life. This new exhibition features over 80 of Myer’s images, developed using the collodion chloride and gelatin processes, Myer would have done in his day.
