The library's ArtSpace exhibit for this month is Writing with Light : A photography exhibit featuring artist Seth Benningfield.
You will recognize quite a few of the local/regional views from the lens of Seth Benningfield... and in case you didn't know, he has also published a book of his photographs, historical writings, and poems: Holy Lands of Kentucky, which is available for checkout at the library or for purchase from Amazon. To further introduce you to Seth and his work, I'll use his artist statement: "All my life I have been interested in the art of photographs and the stories they can tell. Yet, it wasn’t until 2008 that I took my first steps into learning the art of photography by exploring various lighting techniques at various locations." "In 2013, I took my biggest step when I enrolled in America’s oldest and largest photography school at the New York Institute of Photography and graduated in 2016 with a degree in professional photography. In 2015, I was accepted into the prestigious Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen in the art medium of Black & White photography." "Though I can do color photography, I find that Black & White is a better medium for telling a story through the lens as extremes of light and shadow can create a mood and atmosphere that color cannot convey. As you look at my photography I hope you create your own stories in the images before you."

Writing With Light will be on view through August 31st.
