Worley joins exhibit at Berkmore Place
Local photographer James Worley joins the artists exhibiting two- dimensional work beginning Thursday, March 8 at Berkmore Place ArtSpace located off Route 522, across from Widmyer Elementary and south of Berkeley Springs.
A home-schooled high school freshman, Worley developed an interest in photography at age 13 and continues to hone his abilities by photographing a variety of subjects from nature, particularly flowers. His innate creative sense is evident in the strikingly artful color and black and white compositions that often feature close-ups of orchids, lilies, roses and other flowers.
Orginally from Lansing, Mich., Worley says he is inspired by Berkeley Springs' natural surroundings. "I really enjoy being able to use my talents to portray the beauty of God's creation."
A skilled violinist, is a member of the Shenandoah Valley Chamber Orchestra in Winchester, and also plays in various local concerts and musicals in Berkeley Springs.
The Berkmore gallery space is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday 8 to 12, and is closed Wednesdays.
The Berkmore ArtSpace's mission is to make art more broadly accessible to Berkeley Springs' diverse community, and to provide regional artists with another exhibiting opportunity.
