Beginning Tuesday, September 14, 2010 the library will be hosting a display of photographs by the Upper Ohio Valley Camera Club in The Gallery behind the library. This year these talented photographers are displaying pictures on the theme "Scenes of the Tri-State Region." Their photographs display natural and manmade wonders from Pittsburgh, PA to Wheeling, WV and Cass, WV to Cadiz, OH and many points in between. The camera club has exhibited photographs in The Gallery several times in the past, and their work is always impressive!
In addition to the outdoor exhibit, there will be a slide show, print exhibit and reception on September 14 beginning at 6:00 p.m. Several of the photographers will be in attendance and they have always been gracious about answering questions from the audience.
