In June and July, local photographer Amy Piper is on show at The Libby, located in the Lakes Region portion of the NH Heritage Museum Trail in Wolfeboro. Her textures and landscapes are stunning, and many images are for sale.
Now open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 to 4pm and Sundays from 12 to 4 pm, The Libby is free to children and veterans and $5/adult. There are few places more beautiful than The Libby and few photographers more gifted than Piper.
Her passion for photography runs the gamut from nature and landscape to texture, abstract, and detail. Her mother used to tell her she saw the world through “rose colored glasses.” She prefers to think with her eye for detail, as she sees the potential beauty in everything and tries to bring beauty to life through her camera lens for others to enjoy and appreciate.
Piper is owner and creative designer of Signature Events, a local wedding and event planning company now celebrating its 19th year. Locally, she belongs to the Lakes Region Photography Club where she has been a member for several years.
She was given her first camera when she turned 16. Growing up in Connecticut, she was inspired by her parents who were both talented artists and photographers. She remembers her mom developing her own pictures in “the family bathroom turned dark room” where one had to knock on the door before entering.
The Libby is one of 17 museums on the NH Heritage Museum Trail with stops in Canterbury, Concord, Dover, Exeter, Laconia, Manchester, Moultonborough, Plymouth, Tamworth and Wolfeboro. To learn more about The Trail and its member museums, visit www.nhmuseumtrail.org.
