March 3, 2019 - April 28, 2019 @ Downtown Library
Prepare to be captivated by the dramatic new photo exhibit, “The World, My Lens and I,” by Diane DeQuevedo Klein! Enjoy a diverse and stunning array of photographs depicting the people and landscapes in our world. DeQuevedo Klein studied and taught philosophy at the university level and then worked in business before finding fulfillment as a photographer. “A photograph captures a discrete moment in time. When I photograph people, I hope to capture a decisive moment about what it is to be a person, to feel like a person, or to be a person among other people,” notes DeQuevedo Klein. “Nevertheless, the world being as diverse and interesting as it is, I am equally drawn to an architectural detail, a field of grass, or an urban landscape.” The exhibit will run from March 3–April 28, 2019, at the Downtown Library, an Art in Public Places venue, at 400 NW 2nd Avenue. The exhibit is free and open to the public during regular library hours.
