Photographs, quilt to adorn North Plains library
A new month means new displays at the North Plains Public Library. November will bring work from a local quilter and a Portland-area photographer.
Jo Ann Tannock, a North Plains library volunteer, will lend her hand-stitched Grandmothers Flower Garden quilt through November. Tannock has been quilting for decades and rarely uses a sewing machine.
Tannocks favorite part of quilting is picking out colors and fitting each piece together precisely.
Oregon photographer Charlie Hymans work will join the quilt on library walls through December. Hyman explores the Pacific Northwest when he goes on vacation, capturing outdoor magic with his camera.
Photography is much more for me than just finding interesting things to capture in digital images; it is a way of seeing whats around me, of looking for beauty in the natural world, Hyman said. With or without my camera, I notice more and pay closer attention to my surroundings, to the weather and to contrasts in light, shapes and subjects because of my interest in photography.
A reception for the artists will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 14, at the library.
