The Nature Photography of Jo-Ann Stafford

The second in the Featured Artist Series at Unity of Sussex County highlights the nature photography of local artist Jo-Ann Stafford.

After studying fine arts in her native New York City, she moved to rural New Jersey where she soon became enthralled with its natural beauty.  Jo-Ann traded her paint brushes for a pen and lens and began her career in nature photography often enhanced with her poetry.  Her portfolio can be viewed on her website www.lookingglassphotos.com.

The current exhibition features twelve photographs of area scenes, birds and animals.  It is located at Unity of Sussex County on Mudcut Road in Lafayette and can be viewed on Sundays before and immediately after services which begin at 11:00 am.

Unity’s Featured Artist Series was created to provide local artists a venue to exhibit their work while providing an opportunity for Sussex County art enthusiasts to enjoy art in a relaxed, contemplative setting.

The series opened with an exhibition of oil landscapes by Wendy Stamer.   Unity’s art gallery changes with the seasons so look for the next Featured Artist in the spring.

Artists interested in participating are invited to contact the office at Unity of Sussex County for an application www.unityofsussexcounty.org
