WARRENTON, Va. – Photographs by members of the Manassas Warrenton Camera Club will be on display at Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) from Sept. 16 through Oct. 27, 2006, in the main building at the LFCC Fauquier Campus, located at 6480 College Street in Warrenton. The exhibit is free and open to the public from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Friday; 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday; and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

The photographs in the exhibit have been through a very strict jury selection process associated with the Annual Nature Photography Expos at Meadowlark Botanic Gardens in Vienna, Va., which is part of the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority. The theme for the exhibit is North American nature photography, which includes any plants growing in North America. Animals must be indigenous.
