From 1-3 p.m. Saturday, April 4, Topsham Public Library will hold a reception in the Crooker Gallery kicking off their annual photography exhibit.

The Joy of the Lens is an annual juried photography exhibit featuring original photography by year-round Maine residents, both amateur and professional. Prizes will be awarded in categories including Nature and Landscapes/Seascapes, People, Animals, Digital Darkroom, Details and Macro and a new category, 35mm.

Music during the event will be provided by Brian Cullen on classical guitar. Refreshments will be served. The exhibit will hang in the Crooker Gallery through May 9. Visitors will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite work for the People’s Choice Award, to be presented at the close of the exhibit. As always, our programs are open to the public.

The Crooker Gallery is part of Topsham Public Library. The Topsham Public Library is located at 25 Foreside Road in Topsham. For more information, contact the library at 725-1727 or at
