Beginning Nov. 3 with a public reception from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. with wine and light refreshments, the Montgomery Museum of Art and History at 4 East Main St. in Christiansburg will present an exhibit of the photography of Christiansburg’s Tim Lawson.
Thirty-five photographs comprise the museum’s exhibit, which will be on display through December. Some works are printed on metal such as aluminum. As the exhibit’s opening nears, Lawson said, “Thanks for taking your time to see the world through my lens.”
Included in the exhibit is a photograph of a lone tree on Lake Wanaka and a photograph Lawson took in Copenhagen, Denmark, of replicas of thousand-year-old Viking ships. The ships themselves are inside the Roskilde Viking Ship Museum.
Lawson has lived in Christiansburg since the 1980’s. He first got interested in photography while taking pictures of his two daughters playing softball and volleyball. Once the children grew up, he transitioned to landscape photography, which has become his favorite art form.
