Flower City Arts Center's photography program is celebrating its 40th anniversary with a fundraiser and exhibition that looks back at its origins — the program was founded in 1977 by Anne Beach as Cucumber Alley School of Printing. This history is illustrated through archival materials, a documentary video screening, and display of photos by volunteers and staff in "From the Seeds of Cucumber Alley: Celebrating 40 Years of Photography," on view at the center through December 21. There will also be a special sales gallery of photographic prints by Lou Ouzer, Goldee Hecht-Meyer, Dan Neuberger, and others, with 100 percent of proceeds benefiting the 40x40 fundraiser.
Flower City Arts Center, 713 Monroe Avenue. Monday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Tuesday through Thursday; 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.; Friday through Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. The exhibition is free and open to the public. 271-5920; rochesterarts.org.
