Belmont resident Jeanne Widmer will display several photographs as part of the Atelier 29 Exhibition from March 7 to April 4 at the Griffin Museum of Photography, 67 Shore Road, Winchester.


A reception with the artists will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. March 10 at the gallery.

Widmer, whose photographs focus on the unguarded moments of childhood, is one of 21 photographers participating in the exhibit. Griffin’s photography Atelier, in its 29th year, is a 12-session portfolio and project-building course for intermediate and advanced photographers.

In recent years, Widmer has studied photography at the Arlington Center for the Arts, the Griffin Museum and the New England School of Photography. Besides a number of class exhibits, she has had two solo exhibits: the first, “95 Years of History” at the Belmont Media Center in 2016, captured the 95th anniversary of the Studio Cinema. The second, “History in Low Light” at the Beech Street Center last May, highlighted Waverley Square, a historic, working class center of Belmont.

The Griffin Museum of Photography was founded in 1992 to provide a forum for the exhibition of both historic and contemporary photography and features rotating exhibits from some of the world’s leading photographers as well as up and coming artists in its three galleries.

“It has been my immense pleasure to work with the photographers of Atelier 29,” Atelier instructor and photographer Emily Belz said. “Seeing each student’s individual work evolve was inspiring and the resulting portfolios showcase the diverse interests and talents of these 21 photographers.”

All the current and past portfolios, including Widmer’s, can be viewed at the Griffin Atelier website at by clicking on the name of the photographer.
