Here’s a list of Lancaster City venues that I believe will be showing some photographs this First Friday, July 4th:

Where the Road Goes: This collection features photographs taken between 2009 and 2011 at different points across the United States. It was a personal journey that led me to places where I was often struck silent by the beauty and authority of nature. My approach was to rely on natural light to reveal a feeling of quiet reflection. Sometimes it takes an act of faith to trust that wherever the road goes is exactly where we are to be. – Julie Vitto
