An Evening with the Horse and the Camera - Sept 29

Join photography expert Jo Tartt, Jr. and the NSLM’s George L. Ohrstrom, Jr. Curator of Art Claudia Pfeiffer in an exploration of how advancements in cameras, black & white film, and  stop-motion photography captured human imagination and the horse at rest and in motion, not just as a common physical presence as a beast of burden and means of transportation, but also as a reflection of status, a vehicle for sport and leisure, and a subject of artistic inspiration. RSVP to Anne Marie Barnes at 540-687-6542 x 25 or
