Busiel Mill exhibiting photography of Mary Villaume

LACONIA — The photography of Mary Villaume is featured for the month of January at the Busiel Community Room and Gallery at One Mill Plaza in downtown Laconia.

Villaume's portfolio contains both film and digital in black and white and color. She has been capturing images for many years in many venues. Mary's father gave her a Kodak Brownie when she was ten years old and her first SLR shortly thereafter while she lived in West Africa.

A self trained artist, she was encouraged by friends to develop her private collection of photos and to sell her work. She first began producing cards then went on to mat her prints. Later she began to frame her work and has been featured in a number of area businesses. In 2009 she was published in the Lakes Region coffee table book THE LAKES REGION, FOUR SEASONS COUNTLESS MEMORIES.

She hopes that her presentations can be of encouragement to others who might be timid about expanding their talents. She feels that personal and artistic development come with each opportunity to show her work.

She would tell you that her strengths are her "eye" to see what many people do not and her ability to compose or "frame" a shot. "I consider myself rather eclectic in approach. I am drawn to landscape as well as portrait (preferring candid). I love both vibrant colors and the crispness and detail of black and white. I see uniqueness in my front yard and search for it in the world afar. I am a creature that loves the permanence of my home yet I feel starved without adventure beyond those same boundaries. I love to look at life through the eye of the lens with the twists and turns it can provide the viewer."

A resident of Gilford since 1980, she loves New Hampshire and the rural way of life in the Lakes Region. She lives to travel anywhere she can and does so as often as opportunity arises.

The Busiel Community Room and Gallery is located in the Busiel Mill known as One Mill Plaza. Anyone having any questions or wishing to display should contact Joe Adrignola at 496-3839 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
