Black and white photo of trees by Becky HartLeesburg, VA (February 27, 2018) – The Leesburg Commission on Public Art is pleased to announce a new art exhibit on the first floor of the Leesburg Town Hall (25 West Market Street). “Endless Wonder – a glimpse into a Loudoun County childhood”  features photography by Becky Hart. 

Hart is a Leesburg-based photographer specializing in natural light portrait and lifestyle photography. Her organic approach involves capturing unexpected, luminous images that showcase her subjects’ true personas in all their complexity, avoiding predictable or contrived portraits. 

Authenticity is the key ingredient in her artistic sensibility.  Hart believes that big, bright smiles are lovely, but the unlikely expressions are equally appealing.  

“The intention of this project was to capture the whimsy and curiosity of a child growing up in this diverse area we call home,” Hart explains. “I believe in creating photos that showcase vibrant energy. Photos that capture authentic curiosity in the life of a child.  A life momentarily free from technology!   The photos celebrate the imagination of a child in this land of opportunity. The majority of the photos included in this exhibit were taken on the grounds of the Oatlands Historic House & Gardens, a National Trust Historic Site, where I have had the privilege of residing since 2017.”  

The first and second floor lobbies and hallways of the Leesburg Town Hall feature rotating exhibits by Leesburg and Loudoun artists.  Artists interested having their work considered for a future exhibit in the Town Hall should contact Anne Geiger, staff liaison to the Commission on Public Art, at ageiger@leesburgva.gov
