Photographers show more than 70 images at Lee library exhibit

By Sheena Barnett/NEMS Daily Journal

The images in the new Southern Light Photography exhibit range from the familiar – old buildings on a country road – to the exotic, like zebras and elephants.
Thirty Southern Light Photography members are showing off their best work from the past year or so in a new exhibit at the Lee County Library.
The exhibit, featuring more than 70 photographs, will be in the Helen Foster Auditorium in the library and will be on display through the month of April.
“This is each member’s personal best,” said Mark Stevens with Southern Light Photography. “There are people, landscapes, architecture. There should be a little bit of something for everyone.”
The images range from pets to exotic animals, from city buildings to barns, from portraits to unique views of everyday objects like boots.
Photographers featured in the exhibit include Stevens, Lowry Wison, Buddy McCarty, Heywood Washburn and Ellis Tomsky.
Photographers of all skill levels are included, from intermediate amateurs to professional photographers.
An opening reception is scheduled for tonight at the library.
The photographers will be on hand and refreshments will be served. The exhibit is not juried, and is open to the public during regular library hours.
Some of the photos will be for sale, depending on the photo and the artist.
Southern Light Photography will have more exhibits later this year, including one called “Faces,” that will include more than 500 headshots.
