In-Sight Photography Project to launch artist talks series

BRATTLEBORO — The In-Sight Photography Project will launch a series of artist talks on Friday, June 28, at 5:30 p.m., at its new location at 183 Main St., Suite 3, Brattleboro.

The inaugural speaker is Jon Gitelson, and the event is free and open to the public.

A Brattleboro resident and associate professor of art at Keene State College, Gitelson has had artwork exhibited at institutions throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe, with highlights including MASS MoCA, the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, the Milwaukee Art Museum, and Galerie f5.6 in Munich.

He has pieces in the permanent collections of the Museum of Contemporary Photography, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. To see his work, visit

“We're doing this series as a way to introduce our students to new artists and introduce the wider community to the work we do at In-Sight and our great new space,” said In-Sight Program Director Zachary Stephens. “I find Jon's work really refreshing and exciting. Most of it tends to be humorous, satirical, or a critique of something in our society.”

Gitelson's work stretches beyond photography to encompass text, signage, found objects, and other media.

In-Sight's artist talk series will continue monthly at least through September and possibly through November. Future featured speakers, all of whom reside in the Brattleboro area or nearby communities, include Nick Meyer, Magdalena Solé, and Jen Morris.

The artist talk series is one of several new programs In-Sight has launched to increase its community outreach and welcome the community into its brand new space.
