Hay Bales in Autumn by Lynne Harding
Program Description: “Colors of Columbia County”, a photographic exhibit by the members of the Columbia County Photo Club will be the latest exhibition in the library’s community room. The theme of “Colors of Columbia County” was chosen to give the photo artists the opportunity and freedom to explore the power of color in the pictures they make. This will be the eighth year for the Club’s annual show, which is hosted by the Friends of The Hudson Area Library. It is an exciting show for the members because they not only display their work, but they also are able to help aid the good work of the Friends of the Library by donating 30% of the sales to the Friends, who support library programs and collections
