Marblehead’s Abbot Public Library will host “Beginnings,” a solo photography exhibit and mini-presentation by Amy Gray, a Marblehead-based celebrity speaker’s agent.
The free exhibit opens on Sunday, Jan. 6, 2:30-4:30 p.m., in the Carten Gallery, Abbot Public Library, 235 Pleasant St. There will be a presentation and opening reception including free cupcakes and a sparkling cider toast.
“Beginnings” is designed to explore fresh starts, transitions and powerful pivots, as well as spark joy and inspiration. The exhibit will be available for viewing from Sunday, Jan. 6 – Monday, Jan. 28.
All photographs are available Jan. 6-28 at www.creativespiritma.com. Peyton Pugmire, founder of Creative Spirit, was the mentor and and director of the “Beginnings” exhibit.
Gray will describe how Jesse Itzler’s “Build Your Life Résumé” course prompted her to create the exhibit and donate all profits to help bring Chloe Rombach (Marblehead High School Class of 2010) home after a traumatic accident in December 2014. Chloe’s full story can be found at www.crowdrise.com/casarombach.
The mini-presentation will offer you practical advice, helpful resources and insider information from Gray’s own “school of hard knocks” journey as founder of New Leaf Speaker Management, which manages the speaking careers of celebrities including Apple co-found Steve Wozniak, musician and Massachusetts native Amanda Palmer, TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie, and author/life coach Martha Beck.
