September Arts Alive! to feature photography

The September Arts Alive! exhibit at the Northumberland Public Library, 7204 Northumberland Highway, Heathsville, will feature another month of photography with the return of Bill Harrison.

To welcome his new show, the Friends of the Library will host a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. September 1.

Harrison inaugurated the Friends of the Library Arts Alive Friday! receptions with his first exhibit in April and May 2016.

This year’s show will be completely new. According to Harrison, this time he is concentrating on Northumberland subjects.

“I enjoy capturing textures and details. I have tried a mix of old and new; beautiful and not-so-beautiful subjects, all of which are part of our environment,” he said.

Harrison, who moved to Reedville in 2013, has been a practicing photographer for over 45 years and now has a studio in Reedville focusing on a range of projects. He also has judged various photo shows and has a continuing exhibit at Grace Episcopal Church in Kilmarnock, he said.

Harrison teaches photography workshops from basic tips and pointers to advanced imaging and techniques.

“I try to discourage folks from depending on photo software, because I believe photography should be created in the camera rather than manipulating images as an afterthought as a way to ‘improve’ them,” he said.

Reception admission is free and refreshments will be served.
