I’m thrilled to be one of four artists in Huntington Arts Council’s “Her Story Through Art” Invitational Show! The Opening Reception – Friday, March 3, 2017, from 6-8 pm – is free and open to the public.
Since the exhibit celebrates Women’s History Month, I selected pieces from my portrait and news photography that focus on females of all ages – with emphasis on women passionately involved in civics and politics, the arts, and volunteering.
Fellow artists ANAHI DeCANIO, TARA LEALE PORTER, and IRENE VITALE are also showcased in this exhibit. It’s fun preparing for the exhibit with them, and I’m looking forward to seeing their work in person.
Friday’s Opening Reception was special for so many reasons, and the cutest one was that my grandchildren, who are one-and-a-half and almost five years old, were there with their mom, dad, and Aunt Laurie.
Other much-appreciated visitors included friends and fellow photographers from LICP; plus, several people featured in my photos came with their families. So exciting!
