On June 13 and 14, local photographer Alexandria Penshorn will be having her first Photo Gallery Show and Sale. This bright, 14-year-old young lady was raised in Blanco and is currently an 8th grader at Blanco Middle School. Over the last 7 years, she had advanced from film Quick snaps to digital cameras. Saving her money from her after-school and summer animal care job at a local ranch, she purchased her first digital camera four years ago. She now uses a Sony A350, with plans to upgrade in the future.
In April of 2009, two of her images were chosen for viewing at the Watson Studio Gallery in Johnson City, where owner and photographer Carol Watson had a juried show titled “Young Guns,” featuring approximately 20 worldwide student photographers. In May, one of Alexandria’s photos was chosen for Watson’s “Flower Power” show, which coincided with Johnson City’s Annual Wildflower Festival.
Miss Penshorn’s show/sale will have over 20 framed pieces on display and will be on June 13 and 14 at the Rockin’ R Steakhouse Party Room from 10:00am to 5:00pm daily, located at the corner of 4th and Pecan next to Riley’s BBQ. Everyone is welcome to come and view this young entrepreneur’s work. Her work can also be viewed at Carousel Antiques on the west side of the Old Blanco Courthouse Square, Wimberley Market Days, and on her website, www.blancopg.com, where she also offers a variety of photographic services.
