Thanks to chapter members Linda Miller and Ted Sargent, the Historic Rivers Chapter photo exhibit is in place at the Williamsburg Library downtown. Head down to the Gallery to see our award-winning photos. The exhibit will be there until September 7.
From Monday, July 20th until Monday, September 7th, the exhibit, “Through the Eye of a Naturalist” will be on display at the gallery inside the Williamsburg Regional Library. This exhibit will highlight flora and fauna found in Virginia. “Each piece has a different view of nature,” said Linda Miller, local artist and coordinator of the event. “Some are up close and others a bit farther away, allowing us to take a step back and visit with nature.”
For the last five years, the Historic Rivers Chapter has had professional judges select winning photos submitted by its members. The exhibit shares these winning photos with the public. First place in the “flora” category went to Patty Maloney who submitted a photo of Black-eyed Susans. First place “fauna” photo went to Judy Jones for her photo of a very young Prothonotary warbler. And Hart Haynes’ photo of dew on foliage was first place in the ‘other’ category.
President Shirley Devan said “the contest is a good match for the chapter. We have some great photographers in our group so it was natural to do a photo contest. There are some spectacular photos in the exhibit.”
