Past Gallery Exhibit – Embracing Aging

The Rosenberg Library Museum presented a photography exhibit entitled Embracing Aging in the Harris Gallery. The show was a collaborative effort between the Library and the Galveston Reads program.

Galveston Reads is a community-wide book club that encourages unity through literature. The book selection for 2012 was the best-selling Still Alice by Lisa Genova, which follows the struggles and triumphs of a woman who is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

Embracing Aging featured works by accomplished local photographers Barbara Pursley and Marilyn Brodwick. Both artists spotlight aging and present images that invoke powerful emotions and draw viewers in for a closer look to see the beauty in “ordinary” people.
