Photo by Tammy Nevills
Local photographer and artist, Tammy Nevills' solo show opens this Sunday, December 11th at the Carnegie Heritage & Arts Center from 2-5 pm.
Tammy was born and raised in Indiana, moving to Greene County when she was only 7 years old. She holds a great love of the outdoors, animals, weather and all the beauty nature has to offer....with the exception of mosquitos!
Her fascination with photography began as a child when she became interested in her Dad's Kodak 110 camera he had received as a gift for opening a checking account. For her birthday that year, she asked for a roll of film and to use the camera, which eventually became her first camera and several years later moved up to a digital camera with a gift from her big brother Dan.
Tammy says, "The thing I like most about photography is that it opens my eyes to things that I might have otherwise missed. Even when I'm not carrying it, I'm always looking for things/details that may be "hidden" in plain sight, and the "discovery" of these things, if only for a moment, takes your mind from the stress and frustrations that are often part of daily life, and leaves you standing in awe and delight at some simple little treasure, that perhaps was always there, but in this moment, is a gift from God, just for you...."
Stop by the opening this Sunday, December 11th from 2-5pm at the South East Gallery at the Carnegie and see these windows into the extraordinary, enjoy the refreshments and meet the artist!
If you miss the opening the show will run through January 7th.
Hope to see you there!
