Library Life: Jill Sneiderman to have photography exhibit in Delray


“Every other artist begins with a blank canvas, a piece of paper … the photographer begins with a finished product.”

Those are the words of Jill Sneidman, photographer and guest artist at the Delray Beach Public Library. Her exhibit, “Capture the Moment,” will be on display March 24 through May 18 at the library, 100 W. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach.

Sneidman says she discovered her passion for photography while living in San Francisco, photographing at the Conservatory of Flowers. Among her favorite scenes to photograph are slot canyons, bridges and arches, and she also has a love of lake scenes and waterfalls.

A meet and greet with the artist is planned for 3-4:30 p.m. April 6.
