We are pleased to have a new photography exhibit in the Nordic Center Gallery during the month of February. Sheri Larsen, a Bolton Nordic regular, is a nature and travel photographer from Essex, Vermont. She always has a digital camera with her – whether she’s going for a walk in Vermont or traveling to distant points in the U.S., Canada or other countries. In some photos Sheri Focuses on the details in nature, while in others she tries to capture the grandeur of a particularly scenic location.

Sheri has exhibited her work at the Champlain Valley Art Gallery and the Burlington South End Art Hop. Wildflower and other photographs of hers were published in the book Nature Walks in Northwest Vermont and the Champlain Valley by Elizabeth Bassett. In addition, several of her photographs have appeared in local media.
