Of Note

A sale of original photographic prints by Norwich photographer Chad Finer will take place this Saturday and Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., in the large barn below 189 Brigham Hill Road, in Norwich.

All prints are $30, unframed, with proceeds going toward the Aidron Duckworth Art Museum, in Meriden. For a $25 donation to the museum, of which Finer’s son Ben is director, Finer also plans to shoot and print 8.5-by-11-inch portraits at the sale.

The prints will reflect the past half-century of Finer’s interest in photography, and depict a wide array of subjects. Some of the photographs have been exhibited previously in his annual show, while others have not been shown publicly.

Early-bird registration is open for this summer’s International Comics and Medicine Conference. The Aug. 16-18 event series, which explores the intersection between comics and health care discourse, will be hosted by the Center for Cartoon Studies, in White River Junction, with support from the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College.

This year’s workshops, discussions, exhibits and lectures will explore the idea of “graphic medicine” through the theme of “The Ways We Work,” inspired by one of this year’s keynote speakers, Norwich resident David Macaulay, who is perhaps best known for his visual guides to machines and the human body in The Way Things Work and The Way We Work.
