Listen to the past Coffee with the Curator program with William and Sarah Ross Soter Associate Curator of Photography, Anna Lee.
She discusses No Mere Button-Pressers: Clarence H. White, Ema Spencer, and the Newark Camera Club. A joint production by CMA and The Works: Ohio Center for History, Art, & Technology, this exhibition explores the time White spent in Newark, Ohio before he left for New York and became a leading Pictorialist photographer. CMA’s display features original work by both White and Ema Spencer, another Newark resident and a budding photographer. The title of the exhibition comes from Spencer’s essay about the Newark Camera Club, claiming that this group of artistically-minded amateur photographers were “no mere button-pressers”.
