local views: a valley of art opening reception

The Margret and H.A. Rey Center was pleased to celebrate the opening of “Local Views: A Valley of Art,” an exhibit featuring the works of seven local artists, and the first community art gallery exhibit in the new Margret and H.A. Rey Center in Waterville Valley’s Town Square. Participating artists were Sarah Heidenis, Maryellen Sakura, Willey Peckham, Roberta Waterston Britton, James Schofield, Kirsten Carruth, and Andrew Tyler. The exhibit showcases the variety of artistic talents among members of the Waterville Valley community. Thank you to all the artists for making this exhibit possible!

To wrap-up the evening, attendees to the opening reception were treated to a multi-media presentation by wildlife photographer Willey Peckham. Willey presented a slide show of his awe inspiring polar bear photographs, set to music; the program gave you the experience of being up close and personal with these amazing creatures. Thank you Willey for sharing your beautiful work!

“Local Views: A Valley of Art” will be on display through Saturday, November 21, 2009. Gallery hours are Saturdays from 9:00 a.m - 4:00 p.m. or by appointment. All works are for sale and a portion of all proceeds benefit the Margret and H.A. Rey Center. Contact the Rey Center for more information or to be a part of future community art gallery exhibits.
