The New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center is pleased to announce the opening of Through the Lens: Our Fishing Heritage on Thursday, May 10 at 6:30 p.m. during AHA! Night. 
This juried show captures the working waterfront and our fishing heritage as seen through the lenses of area photographers.

Photographers allow us to look at life through their lens and capture moments we might otherwise miss. Through their art, they focus our attention on the world around us. This exhibit explores a world many do not see - our working waterfronts and those who make their living at sea and on shore.Organized by the Whaling City Camera Club, this show showcases the talents of local photographers. Award winning photojournalist, Peter Pereira, will select the winners with awards being presented during the opening reception.

Proceeds from this show benefit the Center and its educational programs.The Center is grateful to the Whaling City Camera Club for the support with a special thanks to guest curator Sally Erickson and juror Peter Pereira.

The New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center is dedicated to preserving and presenting the story of the commercial fishing industry past, present, and future through archives, exhibits, and programs.
