Photo exhibit on display at South Charleston campus


Members of the Charleston Camera Club are featured in a new photography exhibit in the library on the South Charleston campus. The exhibit, titled “Varied Visions,” features an eclectic assortment of images and will be on display through May.

The collection features approximately 40 photos by both amateur and professional photographers in both black and white and color and includes portraits, landscapes, architecture, digital and still-life abstracts

Lisa Hechesky, library associate, is a member of the Charleston Camera Club and helped bring the exhibit to the South Charleston campus. Her photo of water lilies, titled “Trio,” is one of the photographs on display.

The club, Hechesky says, was founded in 1953 and is one of the oldest such groups in the Eastern U.S. They meet twice a month on Mondays at the Church of Christ’s annex building at 327 4th Ave. in South Charleston, where both amateurs and professionals share ideas and participate in competitions. Membership is open to everyone, she said.

“You can really improve your photography skills if you’re interested in photography by learning from others,” Hechesky said.
