Many of Harrell’s most-popular photos – a number of which have run on the pages of The New Castle Record – will be included, along with some new ones. All are in rustic barnwood frames handmade from wood that came from local barns.

The reception will be held on Aug. 4 from 2-4 p.m. The center is located in the former Meadowbrook Nursing Home on Rt. 460 and Alleghany Springs Rd. in Shawsville.
