Tim O’Shaughnessy is the featured artist of the month for February at the DeKalb Area Women’s Center Galleries.
O’Shaughnessy has participated in the women’s center’s last two holiday shopping fairs, but this is his first solo exhibition. He is calling the show “Somewhere On the Journey ... Happy to Be Here” as he considers this event a milestone on his journey to become an accomplished photographer.
“My favorite picture-making moments come when I have the opportunity to become calm in a setting and allow myself go where the spirit will take me,” he said in a news release.
The exhibition includes both color and black-and-white photos, many of which will transport the viewer to vacation destinations. The exhibit can be viewed from 7 to 9 p.m. Fridays in February and other times by appointment.
There will be a free public reception from 2 to 4 Saturday to open the exhibit. The public is invited to view the photos, talk to the photographer and enjoy refreshments.
The DeKalb Area Women’s Center is located in the 95-year-old Finnish Temperance Society meeting hall at 1021 State St. in DeKalb. Parking is available on 11th Street, one-half block south of the building. An accessible lift can be reached from the north side of the building.
