The library will host an exhibit of photographs and artwork created by members of Beverly Boy Scout Troop 2 from May 2 through June 30, 2012. The photographs were executed by the Scouts during several troop camping trips, using a style of photography called “light drawing.” Light drawing involves leaving a camera’s shutter open for a long period of time, creating a very long exposure, then drawing with any light source in front of the open lens. The exhibit pictures were created using glow sticks, LEDs, laser pointers, and flash lights. Since the best results are found by working in darkness, the overnight camping trips allowed the boys to create amazing photographs.
Digital artwork prints by Maxx Manfre, a member of Troop 2, will also be on display. Maxx creates all his art work on his personal computer by drawing free-hand into a computer program. Maxx also makes videos that illustrate the process of creating one of his incredible drawings.
