Gallery 66 NY to host Brigitte Freed Aug. 11

Gallery 66 NY is honored to host Brigitte Freed from 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 11, as she talks about her late husband, Leonard Freed, and his work.

Brigitte Freed will talk to guests and tell the stories behind Leonard Freed’s photographs. Freed was a legendary Magnum photographer, renowned for his insightful images of Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement. Less known are Freed’s whimsical photos of animals and their interrelation with man. Freed’s Man & Beast exhibit opened Aug. 2 at Gallery 66 NY.

Freed died in 2006, before he could see these images presented to the public, Brigitte – who is assembling them in book form – has allowed Gallery 66 NY to be the first to exhibit them. The exhibition continues through Sept. 2. Sculptures by Suzanne Langle, Fantastical Beasts, are also showing at Gallery 66 NY. Sculpted from modified concretes, each is wildly unique.

Gallery 66 NY is located 66 Main St., Cold Spring. Call 845-809-5838 or visit gallery66ny.com.
