BRATTLEBORO -- Vermont Center for Photography, 49 Flat St., hosts an artist’s talk by Stefanie Klavens on Sunday at 4 p.m.

Klavens work is currently on exhibit in "Celluloid Dreams: America’s Vanishing Movie Palaces and Drive-in Theaters" at VCP. Sunday’s talk will also serve as a closing reception for the exhibition since it is the last day of the show. The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Klavens’ work focuses on the importance of place and documentation of visual aspects of the American social landscape. Her photographs encourage deeper thought into subject matter often taken for granted: historic single-screen movie palaces, disappearing drive-in theaters and the quirky individuality often displayed in private homes and places of business. Klavens, a Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Grants finalist, studied at Boston’s School of the Museum of Fine Arts, where she received a BFA and was awarded a Traveling Scholarship.

Klaven will give a talk, followed by Q&A. For information, visit www.stefanieklavens.com. For more on VCP, contact Josh Farr, gallery director, at 802-251-6051 or vcphoto@sover.net.
