‘THROUGH THE LENS’  – A Photography Exhibition

Show Dates :  September 6th ­ September 28, 2018

Opening and Artists’ Reception : Thursday, September 6th, 6:30pm to 9:30pm

We’ve all heard the saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” A photograph captures a particular moment in time ­for eternity. It serves as a memory of a life experience, or perhaps an emotion one will never forget. 

Photography can inspire and even be interpretive. With technology, the art of photography has grown in ways never imagined. Our show this month features a diverse group of talented photographers.

Exhibiting photographers for this show include: Norman Aragones, Suzanne Barton, David Blow,  Nicholas Botelho,  Evelyn Espinoza, Beverly Factor, Samantha Goss, Abhisar Gupta,  Samuel Harnois, Clay Harris,  Jordan Lee,  Brittani McBride,  Steve McBride, Amy Migler, Janet Milhomme, Maria Oliveira, Leagh Sachs, Stephen Smith, and Sara Stein.

Las Laguna Gallery is open Sun­Wed from 10:30A­6:30P and Thur­Sat from 10:30A­8P
