Event description: What is Image Nation? Image Nation is an initiative of Nevada County Arts Council (NCArts) in partnership with Welcome Home Vets. Through photography workshops with master photographer and United States veteran Michael Llewellyn, two seasons of veterans have together created exhibitions of work which are shared with the community in a public space. By February 2018 Nevada County Arts Council will ensure the creation and curation of an online photography gallery and e-commerce site for Image Nation alumni, in order to both exhibit and generate income for veterans themselves. Coupled with this will be an independent mechanism for non-alumni veterans to submit photographs for sale, for their own benefit.

When: January–March 2018
Opening Reception is on Thursday, January 18, 2018 from 5-7pm. The program begins with a color guard at 5:30pm, followed by speaker presentations, poetry read by veterans, and a choreographed dance – Stand Alone Together – by Kassidy Commendatore of InnerRhythms Dance
