August 19, 2020
This program will introduce audiences to an exhibition presented jointly at two locations: CMA and The Works, a history and science museum in Newark, Ohio. The exhibition is titled No Mere Button-Pressers: Clarence H. White, Ema Spencer, and The Newark Camera Club.It provides a glimpse into a thriving group of amateur photographers active in Newark in the late 19th century. The speaker, Cory Stutes is Museum Curator at The Works: Ohio Center for History, Art & Technology. Join us online to learn how Clarence Hudson White, leader of Newark’s Camera Club, went on to become a world-renowned photographer and teacher. How did a small city in Ohio provide such a launching pad for a local artist? The answers have to do with Newark's robust business climate at the time and its connection to vital transportation avenues, creating an environment for creativity to thrive.
