Crossroads of the Community













Crossroads of the Community: Rochester Pubic Market, a photography exhibit by local photographer Margaret W. Miyake, will be on display at St. John Fisher College’s Lavery Library beginning January 7 until February 25, 2011.

There will be an opening reception and talk on Thursday, January 20, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., which is open to the public.

Miyake began photographing at the market in 2006, and this exhibit showcases all of the unique aspects of the market, which was voted America’s Favorite Farmer’s Market in 2010.

The theme of the exhibit will be incorporated into one of Dr. David Baranov’s sociology classes in the spring semester.

In addition to photographing at the market, she has also photographed several of the farmers at their farms. Her work has been exhibited at the Community Darkroom, the High Falls Gallery, and the Link Gallery at City Hall. Find out more about Miyake at her blog, http://www.miyakephoto.com.
