The city of Enumclaw Gallery 2009 presents photographer Lea Bishop and “A Taste of Italy.” The exhibit opens today, Wednesday and continues through Aug. 4 at City Hall.

Bishop is an Enumclaw artist who has shown at City Hall several times during the past five years. According to city of Enumclaw Cultural Programs Manager, her work invites everyone to travel and enjoy the beauty of the earth.

With 14 years of experience creating film photography, and seven years producing digital photography, her skills are highly refined and the photographs are a wonderful expression of her technical skill, and her artistic sensibilities.

A meet-the-artist reception is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. July 10 at City Hall.

In discussing her photographs for a city press release, Bishop said: “In combining my love of traveling and my love of photography, I try to convey the culture of each country I visit through photos. Ansel Adams’ quote is one that exemplifies what I try to do with photography.

“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.”
