Grid Row Exhibit
Artwork by: Anna O'Connor See photography by Anna O'Connor during May and June. She said "From the time I can remember I have always loved cameras and to take pictures. My love for photography has grown over the years. I have now found a subject matter that has kept my interest for many years, and that subject is macro flower photography. I never tire and am constantly amazed by the wondrous perfection that lies inside the unfolding of a single flower.
I have worked at Vanderbilt University for 15 years as a Graphic Artist. I am also a Freelance Graphic Artist, Fine Artist, Sign Painter and Photographer. My work can be seen in and around Nashville. I have exhibited and participated in shows through out Tennessee." This exhibit is sponsored by the Arts Council of Williamson County.
