A Waltz resident will be featuring her artwork, along with seven other artists, at an upcoming photography exhibit at Riverside Arts Center, 76 N Huron Street in Ypsilanti.

Georgette Heron-Willoughby will feature her artwork during “Through the Lens,” a three week long exhibit that will run Oct. 7-29. You can view some of her work on her website at http://thephotomuse.webs.com.

According to Linda Sorensen of MPL Photography LLC: “This exhibit will feature the artwork of eight talented and accomplished women photographers from Michigan and Ohio, each with her own unique style, vision and point of view.”


Nature, urban landscapes, black and white, and marco photography are among some of the styles that will be on display during the show, which opens Friday, Oct. 7 with a reception from 5-7 p.m.

There, you can meet and greet the photographers, who will be showing about ten framed images each.

If you cant make it to opening night, the artwork will still be displayed at the gallery for the entire three week period. Visit the gallery’s website for hours and other information. All artwokout will be available for purchase throughout the whole show.

Some of the artists will also host a free, open to the public, photography lecture at the gallery on Saturday, Oct. 22 beginning at 4:30 p.m.

Seating is limited and pre-registration is required. Reserve your spot by emailing Sylvia Ford at fordartdesign@yahoo.com.
