RUSTBURG, VA -  In partnership with the James River Art Council and the Campbell County Public Library System, Campbell County is pleased to display several selected pieces of work from local artist and former employee, Janet Sheppard.

Sheppard, an employee of the Campbell County Public Library System, developed an interest in photography at age 13.

"I took photography classes at CVCC, which was a part of the Commercial Art Degree," shares Sheppard. "While there, I learned how to develop black and white film."

The photographs on display are all of sunflowers.

"All but one was taken in the Hat Creek area of Campbell County," notes Sheppard. "I like taking pictures of sunflowers in different stages."

While photography is a hobby she loves, and she enjoys landscapes, churches and animals as her subjects, Sheppard said she truly just tries to capture God's beauty in her pictures.

The art installation will be featured in the Haberer Building Boardroom from now until November.

We invite you to visit, and see the impressive photographs on display by Sheppard. For those wishing to purchase one of Sheppard's pieces, she may be contacted via email at: luvsunflowers54@gmail.com.
