An artist's reception will be held this Saturday, January 13 from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Chamber, officially opening her exhibit. Sargent will be present to talk about her work. There is no cost to attend.
Sargent lives on Lone Pine Stable horse farm with her husband, three horses, two cats and a lazy dog, Macy.
"I've been doing photography since high school, but started to get into it more in the past four years or so," she said.
There is much about the natural world that Sargent finds inspiring. "I love hiking our local nature preserves and taking nature photos," she said. "I also have a passion for equine photography."
Beyond photography, Sargent enjoys painting and her exhibit features several of her pieces.
"I also do watercolor and oil paintings in my spare time," she said.
Sargent's exhibition is part of the Whitley County Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center's Focus on the Arts initiative which features the work of a new local artist each month.
"It is our hope that residents and visitors will stop by the Chamber regularly to expand their knowledge about the community and, in the process, gain insight about something new. We have many incredibly talented artists in our community and spotlighting their work is one more way we can demonstrate how dynamic and special our community truly is," said Jennifer Romano, executive director of the Whitley County Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center.
The Whitley County Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center is located at 128 West Van Buren Street in downtown Columbia City.
