Beamie Young/Erin & Lisa

During the month of December the Blanche Ames Gallery is showing "TRAVELS" the photography of three friends who open the lens on their personal journeys, both near and far. The show opens December 4 with an artist talk and reception from 12:30-2:00 p.m. and continues through January 11. Call 301-473-7680 for gallery hours. The three women "have had a lot of adventures together and are always looking forward to the next one."

Beamie Young has been creating award winning photos for the past 40 years. The National Geographic Daily Dozen has twice selected her photographs which capture nature, organic elements, abandoned worlds and rich textures. She is the newsletter editor for the "Frederick Camera Clique" Photography Club. Her work can also be seen at Gallery 30 in Gettysburg, PA and Gallery 37 in Milford, DE.

Lisa Bolton captures the unique qualities of people and objects, the not-so-obvious, rare, or once-in-a-lifetime fleeting moments of life. She has always seen the complexity of life, as illustrated by her childhood response when asked what is the color of the sun. Lisa replied, "Orange, red and yellow!" In her photographs the viewer will find this complexity whether in the natural world of Rehoboth beach or the urban world of New York City.

Erin Tacheny, past president of the Frederick Camera Clique, began taking photos when she was in high school using her mother's Minolta. Over the years she has become a serious photographer with her work represented in many local shows, including a solo show at the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center. While never sticking to any one particular genre, she takes photographs everywhere she goes.

These creative women will inspire your own adventures!
