BVAA hosting Stephen Di Rardo's. "With Dad"-Photo journal of 20 year battle with Alzheimer's Disease

Sunday, February 17, 2019 - 1:30pm

The Blackstone Valley Art Association is proud to present Stephen Dirado’s  award winning photo journal “With Dad”.  Stephen saw photography as a way to connect and to document his father’s emotional, mental,and physical state as he fought Alzheimer’s disease.  He used his camera to provide an intimate look of the family dynamics of caregiving and the passing of time.  He continues the narrative documenting his mother’s life, demonstrating that life endures long after the caregiving ends.  The presentation will take place February 17th at 1:30, 5 S. Main St. Uxbridge, at the Open Skies Gallery.  This event coincides with our photography month.  We have a far reaching display of photos from photographers from Hyde Park to Clinton to Cumberland R.I..  The event is free and open to the public and we hope area residents take the opportunity to participate in this timely, thought provoking presentation.
