[Studio MA] Event Preview : ART Sundays

Sitka Creations to Host Mass Nature Photographer, Paul Sihvonen-Binder,  at ART SUNDAYS event June 1st
Photographer Paul Sihvonen-Binder will display his enchanting photos of the beautiful Quabbin Reservoir area on the first Sunday in June at the studios of Sitka Creations in Shirley. In-state and out-of-state adventurers won’t want to miss this showing of surprising nature photography as we gear up for the summer outdoors activities season in New England.
Quabbin is important for practical reasons because it supplies much of the Boston area’s fresh water supply. It is also a precious jewel for the commonwealth of Massachusetts simply by virtue of its stunning natural beauty. The General Court (the official name of the commonwealth legislature) dammed three branches of the Swift River about 60 to 70 miles east of Boston in the mid-nineteenth century to create the reservoir. In that age before nature conservation became fashionable, the people of Massachusetts set a very progressive precedent by relying primarily on watershed protection rather than filtration. In other words, they wisely made a commitment to preserving the wild and unspoiled character of the area as the best way to protect the purity of the water supply. Sihovonen-Binder’s photographs certainly make this plain. His photos of native wildlife and flourishing forests in Quabbin show off the area to best advantage. Both newcomers and longtime Mass residents will enjoy this display of the photographer’s art in documenting the state’s precious natural heritage.
The event will be held at The Mill — the studios of Sitka Creations at The Phoenix Park, 2 Shaker Road, Suite D101 — in Shirley, Mass., on Sunday, June 1, 2 p.m. – 5 p.m.
