    After my formal education, consisting of Lyndon Institute (’56) and Middlebury College (’62) in my home state of Vermont, early employment in public relations departments at Colorado and Vermont ski resorts led to several years of freelance photography and cinematography throughout the U.S. and abroad. The focus of my work has been primarily in the area of outdoor recreation. -fletchermanley.com.  A reception will be held to open the exhibit on Friday, October 7 from 5-7 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
