NEWSLETTER November/December 2019
Before the 12:00 noon opening on January 5, there will be a very brief member meeting followed by a gallery talk by Lance Hidy.
Lance Hidy is a graphic designer and illustrator, who designed Adams last and best selling book.
A Brief Biography:
Born in LaGrande, Oregon, Lance Hidy studied art and graphic design at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut before starting his own graphic arts studio. After working with photographers Ansel Adams and Arnold Newman in the 1970s, he developed a highly distinctive silk screen style which distills his photographs of people to vividly-colored, flat, hard-edged shapes. This style has been used for the design of three U.S. postage stamps, and on more than forty posters for clients including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Beardsley's Restaurant (of blessed memory), Acme Bookbinding, and Meriden Gravure / Stinehour Press. Hidy also designed the Penumbra typeface for Adobe Systems. He teaches digital graphic arts at Northern Essex Community College in Haverhill, Massachusetts and lives in nearby Newburyport.

NH2020 REVIEW UPDATE
NH Now regional photo reviews are being planned throughout the year. Check Upcoming Events below for the date and time of these meetings. Remember, you can photograph through July 2020 in any region of the state. Feel free to attend any of the reviews. Whether or not you submitted images for a region, it will be helpful to hear feedback on the images.
As we crossed the halfway point of the statewide photography project, NHSPA board members Dan Gingras, Gary Samson, and
Michael Sterling met last week at the New Hampshire Historical Society in Concord with its President and with heads of regional
historical societies around the state. We discussed and planned photo selection, statewide exhibitions, regional exhibits, publication of a book, and archiving the images for historical purposes. Details will be announced as they are finalized.
If you have any NH Now questions, submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you again for your interest and
participation in NHSPA NH-Now Statewide Photography Project.
