071813 Open Reception tonight at Gallery Space for photo exhibit (220 w/3 col Joanna),

LACONIA — The Gallery Space will host an opening reception of photographer, Joanna DeCesare on Thursday, July 18 from 4:30-7 p.m. at 23 Canal Street in Downtown Laconia.

This event is an example of Downtown businesses coordinating with the Laconia Main Street Marketplace located just around the corner from this "meet the photographer" opening. The Gallery Space spotlights local talent through out the year and this exhibition will continue through mid-August.

DeCesare said, "I am forever searching for that "once in a lifetime" photo and I've found photography a very interesting journey. I find myself up and out the door before dawn looking for that incredible sunrise on some days, and standing in the middle of nowhere shooting the moon on another."

Her creative eye and her uplifting attitude toward life can be understood when she added, "I've been chasing eagles, hawks and owls, or photographing a single drop of water into a bowl to capture that one ripple. Weddings, children, or a sand pebble at the beach, are more subjects that I love."

DeCesare is a Laconia resident, member of the Lakes Region Camera Club and owner of the Hair Factory in Gilford.
