The library will be closed, Monday, Jan. 19, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.
The show is titled “Children of the Seventies” and it all started when Liz was writing school newsletters for the Loundonville School and Saint Agnes (now known as Doane Stuart School) in New York. “I wanted pictures to go with the stories and that was the beginning”. “Next I got excited about writing occasional Sunday features for the Albany Times Union. I chose subjects that were interesting to photograph.”
In 1968 Liz Hannock exhibited her photography at the Parent’s Magazine Gallery in Manhattan. In 1969 she did a photograph for Albany’s favorite author, William Kennedy for his first novel The Ink Truck and it became the jacket photo.
Finally she discovered color film and what it did for portraying children. Mothers kept calling her and soon she was on a new adventure “Children of the Seventies”, which this exhibit will feature.
Liz Hannock is also the mother of Stephen Hannock, who has three paintings in the Metropolitan Museum of art and won an Academy Award for What Dreams May Come that starred Robin Williams for special visual effects.
