A new exhibit, “Three Portfolios of Storytelling Artwork by Gail C. Weyant,” will open August 1 and continue through September 1, said marketing committee member Barbara Richards.

The exhibit showcases three portfolios of photographs, said Richards. These three  collections offer diversity of subject matter to appeal to a wide range of viewers.

The first portfolio, “Engaging the Enemy,” features Civil War combat battlefield reenactment photography in color and  black and white, she said.  The second, “Wilderness Landscapes,” offers examples of Weyant’s scenic photography along the East Coast. The third, “Fine Art  Ceramics,” highlights her high fire stoneware, horsehair, raku  and ceramic pit fire vessels through photography.

The public is invited to a First Friday Reception from 5 to 7 p.m. August 3 to view the exhibit and meet the author. Light refreshments will be served.
