Reception planned for Niemeyer photography exhibit at Mitchell Gallery

NEIGHBORS

November 21, 1994|By LYN BACKE

One of many things I want to be is a photographer. I have a dependable eye for interesting composition in my own snapshots, but I am only a lucky amateur.

Lucian Niemeyer, a businessman educated at Indiana University and Notre Dame, has been a professional photographer only seven years. Mr. Niemeyer uses no filters, artificial lights or laboratory magic to enhance his photographs, yet he has published three books and his work has appeared in National Geographic and other periodicals and has been displayed throughout the country.

An exhibition of his work opens Nov. 29 at Mitchell Gallery at St. John's College in Annapolis.

He has carefully researched the Amish of southeastern Pennsylvania, wading birds and the people and scenery of Chesapeake Bay to allow him to see those subjects in greater detail.

His exhibit will run through Dec. 15. A reception and discussion by Mr. Niemeyer of his work has been scheduled from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 4 in the gallery.

A local Christmas tradition is back. The "Holiday Doll House" by the Richwood Toy Co. is on display at Barge House Museum in Eastport. The 4-foot-by-8-foot dollhouse is decorated for Christmas, but the display will be available through March 4.

The museum is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. For nostalgia buffs, the Richwood "Sandra Sue" paper dolls from the 1950s will be on sale while the dollhouse is on display.
