2018 F/STOP Exhibition

The Treetop Gallery currently features two new exhibitions, Ann Harris: Celebrating a Life’s Work and Stories and Sequences: Images from F/STOP, on display from May 3 – June 24, 2018.

F/STOP is designed to be a fun opportunity for people 55 years of age and older to creatively express their identities, tell their stories, and share their connection with Mariposa through photography. This lifespan learning initiative supports a growing collection of research showing that older adults have a great capacity to develop new creative talents and technical skills and that community-based art programs have a lasting positive impact of seniors’ all around health.

During F/STOP workshops, artists-in-residents, Jeannine Andre and Cara Goger, facilitated group discussions about the medium of photography and worked through a curriculum focused on composition, lighting, the elements of art, sequencing and editing. Using iPods, phones and digital cameras to take their photos, participants were encouraged to concentrate on the artistic and conceptual side of photography to tell a story through their images.
