Pop ’n Art features nature photographer

Posted on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 1:47 pm

If you watch Channel 12 early morning weather reports (where weatherman Andrew Freiden shares photos that people send in), or frequent Facebook you may have already seen some of Dawn Howeth’s outstanding photography.  Much more of her work will be featured at the Westmoreland County Museum’s November Pop ‘n Art series starting with an artist’s reception Wednesday, Nov.  15 from 5 to 7 p.m. and continuing through January 2018. Meet Howeth while enjoying her show and the museum’s complimentary hors ‘d oeuvres. Buying a soda-pop will help the museum’s roof fund.

Howeth said her main focus for her nature photography is “to keep the photos as realistic to what the scenes actually were, so I can share the beauty  as I saw it,” while her photographic portrait work  of babies, children and high school seniors “is to capture a moment in time and a bit of the person’s personality” in the photos  that will become treasured keepsakes for family and friends.

Georgia-born, but raised in Chesapeake, Howeth made this area her home after meeting her future Montross-born husband, Jeff Howeth, in Blacksburg; she was an X-ray tech for the Blacksburg Rescue Squad and he was a Virginia Tech student who was also on the Virginia Tech Rescue Squad.
