City Art Works features local photographers
Minden City Arts announces the opening of a photography show featuring three local photographers.
Photographers Robin Kemp, Timmie McEachern and Keith Johnson will be featured in "Picture This!" Photography Show Thursday, May 24.
Kemp, who has been studying the art of photography for six years, realized she had an eye for the art while capturing photos of her son.
"What draws me to photography," Kemp said, "is capturing a moment in time.
"People's personalities shine through as their images are captured, the emotions in someone's eyes and the character lines in their face," she continued.
Kemp lives in Sibley and is married to Webster Parish Sheriff's Office Investigator, Tommy Kemp.
Her photography subjects range from equine photography to an inspirational prayer series.
Local photographer McEachern's photos range from flowers, to old cars and old churches.
"I'm a lover of nature and all things outdoors, enjoying all of my Father's creations," he said. "I'm having a ball trying to capture it all."
McEachern grew up in Minden and manages Neta's BBQ. He is a member of the Shreveport Photographic Society and Minden First United Pentecostal Church. McEachern also composes songs and poems.
Johnson has lived in Minden since he got out of the Army in 1968, shortly after he bought his first 35mm camera in Heidelberg, Germany.
He has captured many images from his travels in Louisiana and other states throughout the United States.
"I have thousands of pictures and slides of people, places and things," he said.
Photography has been a hobby, but he hopes to develop it into a profession.
Johnson has been married to Rose Ann Johnson for 43 years. She is the librarian at Webster Junior High School.
"City Art Works is thrilled to show the work of three very talented photographers," said Bill Cook, assistant director.
"Each photographer is unique and has captured the world through different eyes," he continued.
The photography show will open May 24 from 5 until 7 p.m. with an artist's reception. The public is invited to attend.
The show will hang at the Art Works gallery through the month of July and is free to the public.
City Art Works is located in the heart of downtown, 701 Main Street.
