In recognition of the month of May being designated Lyme Disease Awareness month, River Road Gallery will open an art show featuring the photography of Ron Landis, Larry Silver and Nash Hyon.

Landis’ photographic book, Shadows of Lyme Disease, chronicling his fight with Lyme disease, will be featured.

The public is invited to an artist reception, with all ticket sale proceeds and a portion of the evening’s art sales benefitting the Global Lyme Alliance. Tickets cost $10 for the reception on Saturday, May 6, from 5-8 p.m.. The evening will be catered by Marianne Wilson’s Complete Catering.

Global Lyme Alliance (GLA) is the leading private nonprofit dedicated to conquering Lyme and other tick-borne diseases through research and education. Members of the GLA team will be at the opening reception to answer any questions.

Landis enjoyed a career in executive management. He has always actively had camera in hand throughout his life. Subject matter is as vast as the world around us, but Landis has recently worked on a body of work featuring Weir Farm National Historic Site.

Silver studied photography at the High School of Industrial Art, NY and graduated from the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. For over 65 years Silver has dedicated himself to his photography. At 82, he is the youngest living member of the Photo League. His work is in 30 museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Art Museum, George Eastman House, Brooklyn Museum and Los Angeles County Museum.

Hyon, a nationally recognized artist in her field, divides her time between studio painting and teaching at Silvermine Arts Center. She has exhibited in Washington, D.C., New York City and California. Her subject matter has direct ties to the science of the world around and within us.

The show runs through June 17. River Road Gallery is located at 21 River Rd. For more information, call 203.762.3887.
