Library Hosts Catherine McManus Photography Exhibit

Geauga County Public Library Hosts Exhibit for Local Photographer Catherine McManus

Geauga County – July 19, 2021 – Community members can engage with photography by Catherine McManus at our Bainbridge Branch, 17222 Snyder Rd., until the end of September. The exhibit, totaling 11 photographic prints, is called Water is My Element.

McManus states, “Water has always been a source of inspiration for me, so I wanted to honor this dynamic element that has brought me so much serenity, wonder, excitement and endless creativity.”

The exhibit can be viewed outside of the large meeting rooms, to the left once you enter the lobby, during the regular business hours of 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Mon. – Thurs., and Fri. – Sat., 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Community members can look forward to future art exhibits at all Geauga County Public Library Branches. “I hope my photographs inspire you to seek out the magic in every day, even the small things that delight you and fill you with wonder… and as difficult as it can be in the chaos that surrounds us, to truly be present and appreciate the magic when you find it,” says McManus.
