Graciously hosted by the Norfolk Library Associates, and no reservations necessary.

Art Opening and Reception: Jim Jasper

jimjasperJim Jasper first came to Norfolk as a nineteen-year-old student at the Yale Summer School. The memory of that first summer remains strong: “I remember feeling really awed by nature for the first time– it was so dark on a moonless night that I couldn’t see my outstretched hand. It made a huge impression on me.” Jim studied photography with Michaela Murphy. Inspired by the landscape, he returned to Norfolk many years later to live and work as an artist.

Graciously hosted by the Norfolk Library Associates. No reservations required.
