Business Meeting: This year’s business meeting will include reports and presentations about the Society’s fiscal year 2020 accomplishments and financial results, nominations to the board of trustees, new additions to the library and museum collections, current programs, and future plans.
Featured Presentation, "New Hampshire Now": Inspired by the Farm Security Administration photography documenting life in America during the Great Depression, the New Hampshire Society of Photographic Artists and the New Hampshire Historical Society joined forces, along with seven other partnering organizations, to undertake a three-year project to photographically record daily life in the state. "New Hampshire Now: A Photographic Diary of Life in the Granite State" is a 21st-century portrait of the people, places, culture, and events in New Hampshire. The resulting archive of more than 5,000 images will be preserved at the New Hampshire Historical Society, and a representative sampling will be featured in a book and in exhibitions around the state in the fall of 2021. Project Director and award-winning photographer Gary Samson will speak about the vision and goals for the project and share some of the work of the 46 participating photographers. Samson was named New Hampshire’s seventh Artist Laureate in 2017.
