WASHINGTON — Local photographer Janet Hill’s scenes from national parks will be on display at the Gunn Memorial Library’s Stairwell Gallery from April 17 through May 29.
A socially distanced Meet the Artist will be held on Saturday, April 17, from 12:30-2:30 p.m. All proceeds from sales will be donated to the National Park Foundation and the library.
Hill “goes beyond the usual points of interest to capture less documented, though spectacular, scenes from our most popular national parks,” an announcement said. The exhibit will include seldom seen views from other not so well-known parks, such as Great Basin, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Canyonlands, and Great Sand Dunes.
Hill’s color photographs of historic barns have been featured in exhibits in Farmington, Middlebury, Naugatuck, and Woodbury. She and her husband, Newell, have visited or camped at 28 of the U.S. national parks.
Gunn Memorial Library, at 5 Wykeham Road, is at the juncture of Route 47 opposite the Green. Library hours may be found at gunnlibrary.org. For more information call 860-868-7586 or email the library circulation desk, firstname.lastname@example.org.
