“Walking About Webster” Photo Exhibit

September 1, 2023 - September 30, 2023

For the month of September, we are happy to be hosting a photo exhibit by William “Bil” Gardiner entitled “Walking About Webster”. Bil walked about the town of Webster during the spring and summer of this year photographing around town looking for the parts that make up the whole in Webster. 

There will be a meet the artist reception on Saturday, September 9th, from 2-4 p.m. Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited to attend.

In addition to viewing the show, a contest will be held to try to guess the location of each of the photographs in the exhibit, which were all taken somewhere in Webster. The person that accurately guesses the most locations will win one of the featured 12×12 inch photographs of their choice.

Viewing hours of the show are Tuesday-Saturday 10am-5pm, Wednesday 10am-6pm, closed Sunday & Monday.

Please note: the store will be closed for vacation September 3rd-8th.


Artist Bio: William “Bil” Gardiner is a portrait photographer and photographic artist from Worcester, MA.

Bil has been a photographer most of his life, getting his first camera from a bubblegum type vending machine when he was around 8 years old.

From April 2012-13, he embarked on a yearlong personal assignment “A Picture a Day,” carrying his camera with him wherever he went, producing one image every day for a year. Through this body of work, a fellow artist noted that his work in this area resembled the Tibetan concept of Miksang, or “Contemplative Eye.” In this way, his work captures only segments of objects, rather than the whole, inviting the viewer to deeper contemplation.

As a result, the photographer needs to slow down and take their time while “contemplating” how to create their image, and the viewer has to take their time while trying to identify what it is they are looking at.
