Photographing Belfast’s Waterfront: Then & Now [Exhibition Opening]

June 18, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT


Photographing Belfast’s Waterfront: Then & Now [Exhibition Opening]

Join the community for an opening reception, held under tents outside of the Waterfall Arts building on Friday, June 18th, 5-7pm, with the Gallery open to small groups for viewings. The opening event will feature a poetry reading of works themed around the Belfast Waterfront, starting at 5:30pm and planned in collaboration with the Office of the Belfast Poet Laureate. Those unable to attend in person can enjoy a virtual tour of the gallery with the show’s curators, here, on the exhibition website.

The exhibition will remain open, for no charge and without reservations required, from Wednesdays through Saturdays, 11AM – 3PM, through August 29th (staying open for the final Sunday).

About the exhibition:

This extensive photography exhibition explores how Belfast’s identity has evolved –and how it has stayed the same– in tandem with the varied activities and bustle of its harbor. Held at Waterfall Arts in partnership with the Penobscot Marine Museum and the Belfast Historical Society and Museum, the show includes historic images as well as photographs from over a dozen contemporary photographers. The featured works reveal the rich maritime history, commerce, recreation and scenic beauty of Belfast’s waterfront, as documented over the last several decades.
