Art Display At Stockton Public Library

Photography Exhibit by Cheryl Roy Calvin
Cheryl Roy Calvin has some of her photography on exhibit in the Carnegie Room of the Stockton Public Library until late August of 2006.
Cheryl was born in Ellis County and reared in Rooks County. Her mother and father, John and Olive Roy, raised ten children in a old stone farmhouse west of Stockton. That old house was later torn down and a new ranch home was built. Cheryl attended Stockton High School from 1968 to 1972.
Some of her "Slices of Life" photos were taken during travels to other states or just traveling the scenic backroads and by ways of Kansas.
All photography exhibited is for sale. Cheryl will make a donation of 20% to the Library on any sold photography. This donation will be applied to the Library for the cost of buying new books.
All photography will remain on exhibit until August 25, 2006.
Photographer's Collection
Cheryl has entered the 22nd Annual Five State Photography Exhibition held February to March 2006 at the Hays Arts Center. She has sold photo greeting cards at several Arts and Craft shows and has sold photography to stores in South Haven, Michigan and in Wichita, Kansas. Cheryl will also be submitting photos to the 2006 Gordon Parks Photography Competition and the Wichita Botanica Gardens Photography Exhibit in September 2006.
Also a solo exhibit at the Kansas University Medical Center Art Gallery will be on display from August to September 2007 in Wichita. You can view other photographs that are changed monthly on the website as well.
Some of the photographs at the Stockton Library are: "Angel at Sunrise", "Holy Ruins", "Crackerjack, The Mule", "Waiting to Respond-New York City", "Fighting Irish-Notre Dame", "Making Music", "Stone Bridge of Madison County", "In Memory", "Rain Soaked Bales of Hay", "Limestone Barn", "Calm Waters" and many, many more.
