Kimball Library News 1/5/15

LOVELY PHOTOGRAPHY: Stop in between now and the end of February to see the lovely images by Eva McDermott Photography. The walls of the meeting room as well as other parts of the main library are adorned with McDermott’s work.  She specializes in seascapes, landscapes, and nature abstracts using both film and digital cameras. Her goal is to capture the best image possible in-camera using graduated neutral density filters to improve tonal range of both her digital and film images.

Currently the artist lives in Atkinson, NH with her family but also has been enjoying her summer home in Boothbay, ME for over 30 years. Her favorite places to photographic in the Boothbay area are Ocean Point and Oven’s Mouth. Her photographs have been selected for The Maine Photography Show several years in a row and in 2013, her abstract of bubbles under ice, “Celestial” won 3rd place in the Black and White Category. She has also exhibited her work at the Boothbay Harbor Library, The First Bank in Boothbay Harbor, and Art @ Waterfront Park Festival.

You can view more of her work on her website www.evamcdermottphotography.com.  Please do sign her online guest book and we thank you for looking.
