ARTS MON HOSTS FAIRMONT PHOTOGRAPHER
On Friday, June 7 from 6 to 8 p.m., Arts Mon will open its new exhibition with a reception free and open to the public. The work will feature the latest examples by area photographer Jason Lemley of Fairmont. His works in the commercial area includes engagements, weddings, children, senior, and family portraits. The Arts Mon exhibition, however, focuses on his landscape and wildlife images.
Of his work Lemley says, “I am a recent graduate of the New York Institute of Photography. I have won several awards for my images and have been published in magazines. I am a member of the Professional Photographers of America and the Professional Photographers of West Virginia. I recently earned my certification through the PPA.
“I enjoy Landscape and Wildlife photography because it gives me a chance to get out and photograph God’s amazing creation. Living in Fairmont allows me to be only 2 (a two-hour) drive to some of the most beautiful places. This provides me with some amazing opportunities to photograph.”
The artist will be on hand to speak with viewers at the opening. The exhibition will continue through June 28. Regular gallery hours are: Tuesdays through Fridays, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
