September 20 – October 11 – Art Murphy, Florence Natural History    Museum; Geology and Paleontology Division, Florence, Italy

Art Murphy Solo Show

The opening reception is set for Sept. 20, 2013 and will run for three weeks. Art Murphy has been photographing fossils of the Catskill, New York area. A couple of years ago Art photographed the fossils in the museum in Florence and as a result was asked to exhibit his amazing photographs there. Art believes that focussing a lens on these fossils helps to open a personal window to a relatively unseen view of life’s earliest stages.
