A Country Kaleidoscope Photo Exhibit by Tom Vartabedian
June 4 through July 27, 2016
On June 22 at 7 pm, join us as Tom gives a talk about the exhibit, the history of Armenia,  and the story of its people.


These pictures are part of a collection taken by Tom Vartabedian during two trips to Armenia in 2006 and 2009. He paid particular attention to life in the outlying regions of this historic land, whose history dates back 3,000 years. Images of people residing in the valleys and mountains were captured with an artist’s eye for the vivid colors of daily life and for the unforgettable character of its remote population.

The exhibit commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, paying tribute to 1.5 million martyrs who were killed during the Ottoman Turkish Empire.

Tom Vartabedian spent 40 years as a writer and photographer for The Haverhill Gazette before retiring in 2007 with numerous awards from United Press International, Associated Press and New England Press Association. His columns on local figures and events continue to be featured weekly.
