WATERTOWN — The Armenian Museum of America (ALMA) will be the setting for a joint photography exhibit throughout the months of October and November.
Featured will be the combined works of Tom Vartabedian and Sona (Dulgarian) Gevorkian titled “East Meets West.”
A reception to celebrate the opening of the exhibition will take place Sunday, October 23, from 2 to 4 p.m. on the third floor of the museum in the Adele and Haig Der Manuelian Galleries.
The exhibit will combine Vartabedian’s trips to Armenia over the past decade and Gevorkian’s travels throughout Nagorno-Karabagh.
Co-sponsoring the event will be Project SAVE (Armenian Photographic Archives) where Vartabedian has served as a member of the Board of Directors over the past seven years.
Gevorkian has traveled to Armenia more than a dozen times between 1989 to 2008 with different organizations including an AYF internship with the Parliament, Land & Culture Organization for excavation and earthquake relief.
