Photographer’s Work on Display in the Mayor’s Office
Mayor William M. Manzi has named Joyce Godsey as April’s Artist of the Month. Joyce has lived and worked in Methuen for 35 years. A professional antiquarian bookseller for thirty years, she has written a book on book repair and owns Sicpress.com a book repair supply house.
Besides her passion for collecting and repairing vintage cameras and bicycles, Joyce gives much of her time to Animal Rescue Merrimack Valley and heads the Methuen Rail Trail Alliance. Her many local interests provide the subject matter for most of her photographs. Alternating between film and digital she provides most of images for the animal rescue group and the Methuen Rail Trail projects.
Mayor Manzi stated, “I’d like to personally thank Joyce for her participation in this program. She is one of the many talented photographers living and working in our community. It is an honor to display her photographs. I encourage people to come to my office and view her 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.
