WASHINGTON — The work of local photographer Janet Hill will be on display from Saturday, April 17, through Saturday, May 29, in the Stairwell Gallery at the Gunn Memorial Library, 5 Wykeham Rd.

A socially distanced Meet the Artist reception is planned for 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, April 17, at the library.

Ms. Hills goes beyond the usual points of interest to capture less documented, though spectacular, scenes from the nation’s most popular national parks, including seldom seen views from other not so well-known parks, such as Great Basin, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Canyonlands and Great Sand Dunes.

Janet Hill is an award-winning amateur photographer from Washington. Her color photographs of historic barns have been featured in exhibits in Farmington, Middlebury, Naugatuck and Woodbury. She and her husband, Newell, have visited or camped at 28 U.S. national parks.

All proceeds from sales will be donated to the National Park Foundation and the Gunn Memorial Library.
