The Chesapeake College Cambridge Center on Race Street, next to Poplar Street, will have an art show opening in the Leggett Gallery from 5 to 6:30 pm. This event is free and open to the public.
This month, the gallery features the works of photographer Jay Fleming, whose book “Working the Water” is in its second printing.
Fleming discovered his passion of photography upon inheriting his father, former National Geographic photographer Kevin Fleming’s film Nikon n90s at the age of 14. He immediately developed an affinity to looking at life through the lens of his camera, and what ensued was an exciting photographic journey that led him to his career as a professional photographer.
This exhibit will feature scenes of life on the Chesapeake Bay. “Working the Water” will be for sale, and Fleming will sign copies during the reception.
Refreshments for the opening reception will be provided by The Wine Bar. For more information, contact Marcie Molloy at 410827-5825 or email@example.com.
