Event Description: Stockton University’s Kramer Hall and the Noyes Museum of Art present the opening reception of Stockton Alumnae Kevin Husta’s “Old ‘Hammondton’ ” photography exhibit as part of Hammonton’s November Third Thursday celebration. The exhibition will be on display at the site through January 28, 2018.
Hammonton, which was named for John Hammond Coffin was originally spelled “Hammondton.” The “d” was eventually left out of the spelling over time.
Husta’s exhibition will feature iconic historic locations that give the town its character. Husta’s photographs were taken with a combination of mediums including mid-1970s era sheet film, photographic paper developed in coffee, and digital imagery. Husta also made frames for his photos out of repurposed lumber acquired from within the town. Many of the frames were hand made from recycled discards, including a demolished home and old garage doors.
Husta has a BFA in Visual Arts from Stockton University. He is currently a design engineer for a telecommunications firm and continues to explore his passion for photography in his free time.
While visiting the exhibition, guests are also welcome to participate in a vintage photo booth. Props are on loan from the historic Eagle Theatre in Hammonton.
“Jammonton,” the site’s monthly acoustic jam session will also be held. Musicians of all skill levels are invited to join the impromptu jam session. All acoustic instruments are welcome!
Cost: Free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
