ART! The photos of Herman Brewster at Rochambeau Library

by Nancy Thomas

The Rochambeau library will exhibit the photographs of Herman Brewster, a Rhode Island photographer, and contributor to RINewsToday, beginning the afternoon of Tuesday, July 5th, and ending on July 30th. The photos can be viewed during library hours and they are for sale.

Herman Brewster enjoys photographing the beauty of Rhode Island. He has been a contributor, donating photographs to the Art Connection since 2015. He has volunteered on the Pawtucket City Photo Contest, that results in the popular City of Pawtucket Calendar. Brewster says, “I capture the environment. Water ripples, reflects and changes with the light and the aperture. The water in front of Gilbert Stuart Museum is shallow and gives the camera something new to see each time I visit.”

He holds a BA degree in Psychology from Southern University and MAT in English from Brown University. He was a counselor at the Department of Corrections and an English teacher in the Providence School Department before he retired in 2014.

One of his photographs was chosen for publication in 2017 by Cardthartic Cards. He takes great pleasure in having his photographs chosen by nonprofits, and sharing art with the community is very important to him.
