“Our National Parks”

On display April 17th through May 29th

Cooped up at home due to the pandemic?

Take this opportunity to experience the breathtaking scenery and natural beauty of our national parks.  Photographer Janet Hill goes beyond their usual points of interest to capture less documented though spectacular scenes from our most popular national parks as well as seldom seen views from other not so well-known parks such as Great Basin, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Canyonlands, and Great Sand Dunes.  Enjoy panoramic landscapes, seasonal vistas, and close-ups of the colors and intricate patterns in nature. Janet’s exhibit will be on display at the Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery in Washington from April 17 through May 29, 2021.  A socially distanced Meet the Artist will be held on Saturday, April 17th from 12:30-2:30pm. All proceeds from sales will be donated to the National Park Foundation and the Gunn Memorial Library.

Janet Hill is an award-winning amateur photographer from Washington, Ct.  Her color photographs of historic barns have been featured in exhibits in Farmington, Middlebury, Naugatuck, and Woodbury.  She and her husband, Newell, have visited or camped at twenty-eight of the US national parks.
