'Tulips,' by Helen AndersonCome admire the beautiful floral photography by Helen Anderson showcased at the Library from October 1-30. Enjoy viewing exquisite close-up shots of nature’s best show of color and design in roses, carnations, hydrangeas, and more. This award-winning amateur photographer will share her collection of 8” x 10” framed prints.

Helen Anderson of West Hempstead received an official Town of Hempstead Shutterbug Award from Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray as a winner in the 2014 Town of Hempstead Calendar Photo Contest. Her award-winning “Tulips” photo was featured in their calendar, which was mailed to all the town’s households. “I always had an interest in photography,” the winner explained. Three years ago she bought her first "real camera."

Self-taught, Helen aims, shoots, and hopes for the best from her photographs of favorite topics such as flowers, animals, and her fashion-doll collection. Now retired, Helen worked for many years grooming race horses at Roosevelt Raceway and was also employed as a law-firm secretary.

Exhibit funding is sponsored by the Friends of the Garden City Public Library.
