'Swamp Maple' by Sue Christensen BROOKLINE, MA -  Jamaica Plain photographer Sue Christensen will exhibit a new series of color photographs at the Brookline Arts Center in an exhibition entitled Green Briar: Simple Charms. The series will be on view June 13 through July 29, 2011, and features photographs shot on film with both 35mm and 4X5 large format cameras.

An opening reception with the artist will take place on Saturday, June 18, 2011 from 6:30 - 8:30 pm. Both the gallery exhibition and opening reception are free and open to the public.

In her photo essays, Christensen often searches for the telling detail that encourages appreciation and spiritual contemplation. She examines these themes in Green Briar: Simple Charms, and an earlier series of church interiors entitled Into His Marvelous Light. For more information about her work, visit her website at: http://www.sue-christensen.com

Christensen is a graduate of the New England School of Photography, Boston College Graduate School of Social Work, and Eastern Nazarene College. Her work has won awards at the Duxbury Art Association; Attleboro Art Museum; St. George Art Museum of St. George, Utah; and Eastside Association of Fine Arts, in Bellevue, Washington.

The Brookline Arts Center is located at 86 Monmouth Street and is one block from the MBTA green line and close to bus lines #CT2 and #47 from Cambridge and Roxbury. The gallery hours are from Monday - Friday, 9:00 am - 4:30 pm.
