Tunnels of Light – A Photography Exhibit
Oct 11 @ 9:00 am – Nov 18 @ 5:00 pm
Tunnels of Light - A Photography Exhibit

As we continue to find our way out of the dark tunnels of life, we continue facing the lesson of learning to appreciate life while still in the tunnels instead of ever-reaching for the light at the “end” of them. Five photography artists display a collection of work reflecting on the personal theme “Tunnels of Light.” The exhibit will run through the dates October 11 through November 18, weekdays 9-5, with a celebration reception on Thursday, November 4, 5-7 pm. View work by Liz Stubbs, Chris Craig, Stephen Armstrong, Carolyn Meltzer, and Crystal Berry.
