Featured in my blog, "6 Free Things to Do in Clinton," the Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College is a great place to visit. And now there's even more incentive to go. There are two new photography exhibits at the museum-- "Refocusing the Lens: Pranlal K Patel's Photographs of Women at Work in Ahmedabad" and "In Context: The Portrait of Contemporary Photographic Practice."

In "Refocusing the Lens," Pranlal K. Patel's photographs focus on women working various jobs in Ahmedabad, India during the early 20th century. Here are a few pictures from the exhibit:

"In Context" is an exhibit that features many different artists. Content and subjects range in the exhibit, with many photographs dealing with political and social issues in the world. Here are a few pictures from the exhibit:

If you like photography, I highly recommend these exhibits. As an amateur photographer, I found them to be some of the best photographic exhibits in the area.

Taking at trip to the Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College is well worth the visit.

"Refocusing the Lens" continues through April 15 and "In Context" continues through July 27.
