Join us as we kick off the Desert Companion Photo Exhibit on Tour at Green Valley Library on November 7 from 6pm – 8pm. Come out and enjoy complimentary coffee and cookies, great company, all while you feast your eyes on the fabulous photography.
The photo showcase event features eye-catching photos from the recent Desert Companion "Focus on Nevada" Photo Contest and brilliant photography from Desert Companion past and present. We had such a great response, we're taking the show on the road. The first stop for our photo showcase is the Green Valley Library. Come out and enjoy the exhibit anytime between November 1 – December 31 during regular business hours at the Green Valley Library!
