The Ellicottville Memorial Library is displaying photographs by Jennifer Karns, in her first solo exhibition. The artwork includes landscapes, floral and still life, including a few shots that many Ellicottville residents will find familiar.
Jennifer first studied photography in high school in Atlanta, Ga., and again in college. She graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a degree in Art History. She and her husband Chris, and children Samantha, Lauren and Christopher have lived in Ellicottville since 2005. She credits her family, friends and a recent Artists Way class for showing her the support and encouragement to pursue her passion for photography.
Jennifer explains her artwork: “I love up close and personal photographs of objects that others would not necessarily consider art at first glance. I love to find the soul of an object or in nature and reveal it unexpectedly.”
An artist’s reception is planned for April 27, from 7-9 p.m. at the Ellicottville Library’s Community Room. The reception is open to the public and more of her photographs will be on display for this evening, so please come and meet Jennifer and enjoy this beautiful exhibition of her vision and talent.
The Ellicottville Memorial Library is located at 6499 Maples Rd. in Ellicottville, N.Y. Hours are 10 a.m.–5 p.m. daily, except Sunday. Evening hours are 5–8 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday.
