The work of two colleagues, Patricia Temples and Alan Dranitzke, will be exhibited over the next several months.
From Patricia Temples, “As a native Virginian and a retired educator, it gives me great pleasure to showcase my beautiful state with photos from various jaunts I have taken. From Tangier Island in the east to Highland County to the west, Virginia has much to offer. I hope you see something among my images that excites you and informs you about my home.”
