Exhibit Captures Leesburg's Changing Scene
Town Hall will feature the photography of Gary Mester
Leesburg Town Hall will feature a photographic exhibit of the work of Gary Mester in its first floor exhibit hall until April 30.
The exhibit features 30 photographs depicting local landscapes, natural features, and events shot over a 10-year period in and around Leesburg.
“I’ve tried to capture the changing scenes, because the things that make Leesburg special, like the parades and events, are also very fragile,” Gary said. “While we are surrounded by history, it is the people that make this area what it is today. I hope the photos in the exhibit show how special these events are to the community.”
Mester’s work captures the transition of northern Virginia from rural to a more urban landscape, and his work has been shown in the Thomas Balch Library, City of Falls Church City Hall, Meadowlark Photo Exhibit, Falls Church ArtSpace, BB&T, the Freedom Museum at the Manassas Airport and Goodwin House.
