“Yawn” a photograph by Georgiana Silk will be on display at the Weston Public Library in September.

Weston resident Georgiana Silk is exhibiting photography from her archives starting Sept. 4, in the Community Room at the Weston Public Library.

A photographer from the age of five, when her father, LIFE staff photographer George Silk gave her a a Kodak brownie camera, Ms. Silk has photographed people including personalities, executives and children, as well as food, and architecture.

Recently, she curated the exhibit FARM ART that was shown at the library in January. It included many photographs of the Juliana Lachat Preserve from 40 years ago taken by Bruce Wilkins as well as more current photographs taken by other photographers including Ms. Silk. Art from many talented and recognized artists who happen to live in Weston were mixed with the photographs. A few of Ms. Silk’s  photographs of the Lachat farmhouse and property will be in the current show.

Ms. Silk  has many ties to the area having grown up in Westport, attended school there, and raced sailboats at Cedar Point Yacht Club (and all over the country). She has lived and raised her family along with husband Larry Liggett in Weston.

An opening reception for the art exhibit  is planned for Saturday, Sept. 8 from 3:30 to 5 in the Community Room at the Weston Library.
