WESTFIELD - Patterson Library will open a new exhibit, "With the Eyes of a Child," featuring photographs by Jamie Probst in its Octagon Gallery on Friday, Jan. 4, 2013.
An opening reception for the artist will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. The opening reception is free and open to the public. Wine for the opening has been generously donated by Johnson Estate Winery. The show will run through Jan. 25, 2013, available for viewing during library open hours.
Probst, who owns Bliss Hill Photography, wants to find and share the beauty of the world.
This photograph from Jamie Probst’s “With the Eyes of a Child” series will be part of the newest exhibit at the Octagon Gallery.
"The news corporations today would have us all believe that there is no goodness or beauty left in the world," Probst said. "But the truth is that it is all around us in every day moments. Bliss Hill Photography exists to help capture those beautiful moments that we see and experience every day within our community. To share beauty, instill hope and build faith is our mission. We will help you see the beauty that surrounds you, one photo at a time."
Patterson Library's art gallery program is funded in part by the New York State Council on the Arts Decentralization Re-grant Program administered by the Cattaraugus County Arts Council.
