Shirley Weyrauch started taking pictures as a child with a Kodak Instamatic camera. Though her equipment has changed, her interest in observing and documenting life around her has not. She loves to travel and enjoys sharing her experiences through photography. Family activities and grandchildren are some of her favorite subjects.
The images featured in this exhibit were taken during a recent trip to Tuscany for a workshop with photographer Theresa Airey. The small group spent ten days at La Montalla, an agriturismo (a farm stay in the Italian countryside) outside Contignano and made daily forays into the Tuscan towns and countryside.
In addition to photography, Shirley is a recently published author. Her first book, “Following the Bread Crumbs,” came out of her creation of summer prayer stations for her congregation at Christ United Church of Christ. Shirley’s artist reception will include a book signing and sale.
