Gallery Space Features Photogapher John Gill

LACONIA — The Gallery Space at 27 Canal Street is happy to spotlight the photography of professional landscape and nature photographer, John Gill for the month of November.

Gill's work is published regularly and has won numerous professional awards throughout New England. Gill said," In addition to interpreting the New England landscape photographically, I have a keen interest in bird photography. " These regional landscapes are therefore complemented by a strong sampling of the wild birds that inhabit them.

The exhibition features large framed pieces as well as smaller images which offers the Gallery Space visitor the opportunity to see Gill's images at a variety of scales.

The exhibition will move to Local Eatery for the month of December as part of the Gallery Space and Local Eatery collaborative business venture supporting local artists and photographers. A Meet the Photographer Reception is planned for the end of November. Go to www.fratescreates.com for details.

The New Hampshire Professional Photographers Association has honored Gill twice with its Photographer of the Year award. For more information about the photographer go to his website at www.johngillphoto.com
