Photography exhibit at Caffe di Siena

Local photographers Mort and Sandy Gilbert are exhibiting a selection of their works at Newburyport’s Caffe di Siena this month.

The theme of the father-daughter show, “In Just a Moment,” stems from photography’s ability to capture “the briefest of moments” and preserve “the events potentially forever as photographic images.”

Caffe di Siena is located at 33 Pleasant St.

Robinson-Cox shows work at Firehouse

Photographer Judy Robinson-Cox has unveiled a new show, “Lilliputian Landscapes,” at the Firehouse Center for the Arts gallery this month.

Robinson-Cox’s show depicts a chance encounter she had several years ago with miniature figurines.

“As long as I can remember I’ve loved to create my own private worlds with toys and miniature figures,” Robinson-Cox wrote in a statement. “Several years ago, a friend gave me a tiny plastic pig, which I decided to photograph as if it were life size by placing it on a ‘hill’ of broccoli. This quickly evolved to more elaborate scenes.”
