Nancy Astor-White

A Vanishing Culture: Aphotographic Journey to Tibet

Art Show: Now to June 23




The Sherman Library is pleased to announce that Sherman resident Dr. Nancy Astor-White will exhibit her photographs of Tibet.

Dr. Astor-White’s photos date back to 1981 and reveal what was left of the Tibetan culture after the takeover by Chinese forces and the exile of the Dalai Lama.
Nancy’s photographer’s eye was nurtured studying painting as a youth, and was followed by ten years in the documentary film business and a stint with an independent filmmaker.
Through the use of digital cameras, she has been able to incorporate her husband Tom’s computer skills, to make remarkably striking prints and restore old ones that were originally made from film.

Each month the Sherman Library, as part of our effort to promote cultural enrichment, features the works of a selected local artist. Over the course of a year, many different types of art can be seen such as traditional, abstract, watercolors, oils, pastels, as well as photography. Not only is the artwork enjoyed by library visitors…it’s for sale. In fact, a percentage of any sale is donated by the artist to the Sherman Library.

If you are interested in showing your art at the Sherman Library please contact us.
