Mark Primack Newfoundland Photography Currently on Display at AVH
Mark Primack, of Berlin, NH, and the country of Newfoundland, is the new guest artist in the AVH Auxiliary Rotating Art Program, exhibiting a selection of his Newfoundland photos from this spring. His work will be on the “artist’s wall” in the AVH Cafeteria through Sunday, May 19. Members of the public are welcome to come and see his collection of landscapes featuring vast expanses, icebergs, arctic wildlife, and wildflowers. Viewers can gain a sense of scale by looking for the human figures in some of the pictures. The story behind the photography can be found in Mr. Primack’s statement on the accompanying bulletin board.
Come meet Mr. Primack and view his breathtaking photography at an Artist’s Reception in the Cafeteria from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM on Monday, April 29. Consider having lunch in the Cafeteria at the same time.
A resident of Berlin since he retired six years ago, Mark has been interested in photography for some fifty years. During his undergraduate college days, he took every photography course offered by University of Massachusetts (UMass), Boston. At graduate school, also at UMass, Mark had a major one-person photo exhibit at the university focused on the architecture and technology of Boston’s 19th century waterworks.
During his career as a park and conservation land manager, Mark had hundreds of nature and community pictures published in newspapers, magazines, and newsletters. His nature photography was the subject of a one-person exhibit at the Massachusetts Audubon Society. His photographs were also included in several juried shows at the Duxbury Art Association. Since retirement in 2013, Mark’s focus has been on macro landscape photography of alpine wildflowers that grow above 5,000 feet on Mt. Washington and by the seashore in northern Newfoundland, where he has owned a home for more than twenty years.
