Photographer’s Work on Display in the Mayor’s Office
Mayor William M. Manzi has named Jim Munro as February’s Artist of the Month. Jim has lived in Methuen for 35 years with his wife Pam. He is the father of Alison Munro Walsh and Andrew Munro.
Jim is the owner of Munro Graphics Commercial Printers in Lawrence. Munro Graphics was a Methuen Square landmark for many years.
Light and shapes, both those found in nature and manmade, inspire Jim’s photography. He finds his subjects in the woods of the Merrimack Valley, among the stone mills of Lawrence, on the beaches of Plum Island, and in the rural countryside of his adopted part time home of Prince Edward Island, Canada.
Jim’s style of photography can only be described as eclectic. It’s a blend of black and white minimalism and colorful landscapes.
Mayor Manzi stated, “I’d like to personally thank Jim for his participation in this program. He is one of the many talented photographers working and living in our community. It is an honor to display Jim’s photographs. I encourage people to come to my office and view his work.”
The Methuen Artist of the Month Program was created by Mayor Manzi five years ago in order to give members of the Methuen Arts Community a forum to display their work and to encourage participation in Methuen’s growing creative economy. Methuen artists interested in being considered for Artist of the Month should contact the Mayor’s Office.
