An exhibition of photographs by members of the Upper Valley Art League will open with a free public reception from 7 to 9 pm on Saturday, November 9, at the Kika de la Garza Fine Arts Center Gallery.

Titled Through the Lens, this year’s exhibition will showcase various styles of photography ranging from traditional, digital and mobile created by UVAL members and the UVAL Photography Group. Exhibition coordinator Cyndee Galindo quotes Alfred Stieglitz, “In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.”

The exhibit will be on display from November 9 to December 7, 2019 at the Kika de la Garza Fine Arts Center Gallery which is located at 921 E. 12th Street in Mission, Texas.

The event is free, and the public is welcomed to attend this exhibition. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
