Christy Murray, featured photographer, shares the ups and downs of being a new artist.

Exciting Photography Exhibition showing at the new gallery in Town Brookhaven through October.
Brookhaven Art Alliance (BAA) will open a temporary art gallery in Town Brookhaven on Sept. 23.

This would bump up programming for BAA from two annual events to year-round exhibitions. It would also provide art culture and education into the community for Brookhaven residents and visitors. It may even encourage local artists to show more work and get involved …
