Mr. Fisher remarked, “There was a terrific pool of artists to choose from. One of the great things about this changing exhibition is that artists can be well known and established, in galleries and museums, or they can be students. Everybody has an equal chance to get into the exhibition. Although the show has a Florida flavor because it showcases Florida artists, it shows a wide range of styles and techniques, and all of the work is of exceptional interest and quality.”

The goal of the “Through the Camera Lens” program is to bring art, and the experience of being a photographer, to life though the Palm Beach County Library’s Book Life Series. In its second year, the series features eight books that look at different facets of our identity. The featured book for September and October is “Still Life with Bread Crumbs” by Anna Quindlen which is about the life of a fictional photographer.
