Photographers to exhibit at the VynnArt Gallery (180)

MEREDITH — Tamworth photographers Mike Porter and Susan Brewer will display their works at the VynnArt Gallery located at 30 Main Street in Meredith, on Saturday, August 24 and Sunday, August 25. A meet the artists reception will be held on Saturday from 2-5 p.m.

The show will include some of their favorite works and will feature several large pieces printed on aluminum that give the photographs wonderful luminosity and an almost three dimensional appearance.

It was photography that brought the pair together. Susan was the owner of a Cafe in Marblehead, MA and showcased local art on the Café walls, changing the work out on a monthly basis. Mike, a captain at the Marblehead Fire Department, had his first show at the Café and he was an inspiration for Susan to get reacquainted with the camera, and better acquainted with him. The couple splits their time between Tamworth and Marblehead and are grateful to call two areas so rich in natural beauty, home.

They have both since won multiple awards for their work. Their photos include enticing images of landscapes and wildlife, shot using High Dynamic Range (HDR) Photography as well as more traditional methods.
