Portraits of Italy and Israel

posted in: Local | 0

As you may know, last year Betsy traveled across the Atlantic to both Israel and Italy.  Over a period of fourteen days, Betsy explored and visited many interesting cities — and gained an interesting first person perspective regarding places she’d previously only known via textbooks.  From getting to see the Sistine Chapel in person and experiencing Jerusalem during Holy Week, to swimming in the Dead Sea and exploring the mountaintop of Masada, experiences such as these were inspiration for the photographs Betsy captured.

Early next year, you too will be able to share in these experiences — Betsy will be sharing images created during her time in Israel and Italy at the Dexter library. The two series lecture and exhibit will be held on February 26th, 2012 and April 29th, 2012.

Lecture and Exhibit: Portraits of Rome.
On February 26th, 2012 at 2pm, join Betsy Finn and travel to  Rome – the eternal city – through a photographic exhibit and lecture.  Betsy will share images, historical background, and anecdotes from her visit to various parts of Italy, including Rome, Pompeii, and Tivoli.

Lecture and Exhibit: Portraits of Israel.
On April 29th, 2012 at 2pm, join Betsy Finn and travel to Israel – the land of milk and honey – through a photographic exhibit and lecture.  Betsy will share images and history of Jerusalem during Holy week, as well as the historically significant Masada, to the Sea of Galilee, and Nazareth and Jericho.

Both lecture/exhibits will be held at the Dexter District Library.
