The works of photographer Morgan LeMasters Craddock will be on display at ArtsLink's upcoming First Sunday exhibit set from 2-4 p.m. April 7 at the Francis Creative Art Center in New Martinsville. Light refreshments will be served at the free event.

While Craddock dabbles in many forms of visual art, her inaugural ArtsLink exhibit will showcase her primary medium of digital photography. Additionally, Craddock will share a few silver gelatin prints. Her collection will include photographs from the past five years of shooting.

Craddock began photographing as a teenager and carried her passion for the art to Marshall University, where she studied fine art and photography. In addition to artistic photography, for the past several years she's worked as a professional photographer, shooting anything from senior and family portraits to weddings and other such events worthy of capturing.

Craddock resides in Huntington with her husband, Lonnie, and their newborn daughter, Josie. To view some of her work online, visit her business page, Morgan LeMasters Photography, on Facebook.

This event is part of ArtsLink's ongoing First Sunday exhibit series. For further information on this or other ArtsLink activities, call 304-455-2278, e-mail at artslink@artslinkwv.org, or visit the website at www.artslinkwv.org.
