April Art Show: Nancy Marshall @ Brewster Ladies' Library
Apr 1 – Apr 29 all-day

For the month of April in 2017, the Brewster Ladies’ Library is pleased to present a photography show by Nancy Marshall.

Nancy Marshall was born and raised a farmer’s daughter in the small town of Westport, MA off the coast of the Atlantic. She is now a Cape Cod resident living in Brewster, who takes delight in the wonderful images of the New England seasons and our natural environment in all its beauty. Nancy specializes in wildlife and landscape photography. Many years of wilderness treks and outdoor field work have created in her that certain instinct for capturing the highly sought after “special shot”. Her artistic goal is for viewers of her photographs to feel and understand her profound love, admiration, and respect for all things wild.

“I truly believe that an image should tell a story and invoke emotion. To capture a moment that delivers such feeling is hard to come by, and the greatness of ‘being in the right place at the right time’ really takes hold. My love for producing these images has led me to opportunities I have always dreamed of. I have enjoyed taking photographs all my life, but it is only now that I can truly appreciate the art and time invested in creating a magnificent shot… There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.” – Nancy Marshall

This exhibit is sponsored by the Brewster Ladies’ Library. Please call the Library at (508) 896-3913 before coming, due to the exhibition room sometimes being in use for a program and not open for viewing.
