GirlsEyeView (GEV) is a creative and supportive space for girls to express themselves through photography and creative writing. In Amherst, they capture images with black and white film and manual cameras, develop their prints in the darkroom, write stories and poems, share their ideas about important social justice issues, and laugh! In GEV, they will also exhibit their work several times a year in their schools and downtown community spaces, and interact with other youth in Youth Action Coalition’s Arts-for-Change Project. GEV is open to middle and high school-aged girls and utilize the fantastic darkroom at Amherst Regional High School. Staff/Peer Leaders will meet participants in the ARMS lobby to walk over to the high school. Visit their Website or Gallery here!

The Robert Floyd Photo Gallery and Learning Center continues to accept donations of 35 mm film cameras, camera accessories, darkroom equipment, and photo supplies from our Gallery Visitors. We then ensure Girls Eye View receives them immediately. Their young women photographers are an integral part of The Gallery’s Annual “Women in History Month” Juried Photo Exhibit.
