BELLOWS FALLS >> Since Aug. 1 , and continuing throughout the month of October, the Flat Iron Exchange will be showcasing the photographic artwork of Jimmy ienner, Jr.
Jimmy's true passion lies in landscape photography and photojournalism. He has been enamored with railroads since he was young, even having his own model train room as a boy. His passion led him to Bellows Falls in the summer of 1993. Being one of a selected few given private access to the Green Mountain Railroad, Jimmy fell in love with the environment in which Bellows Falls sits. Year after year, Jimmy has returned with camera in hand, slowly acquiring a large catalogue of images. He now brings to you some of his work from years in the making of Abstract and Landscape photography. The shots represent the Old Railroad and Old Mills in Bellows Falls, including some shots taken just across the river in New Hampshire at the Historic Round House.
Meet the artist at the opening reception on Aug. 19 from 4 to 7 p.m., being held in conjunction with BF3F, Bellows Falls 3rd Friday. Chocolates, ice cream and other treats are being planned. Local talent, Josh Maiocco will be playing acoustically during the evening.
