FARMINGTON – The meaning of friends has been captured by the photography of local residents featured in the new exhibit at Franklin Memorial Hospital. On a wall in the hospital’s front lobby, 20 photographs framed in various sizes express the theme, “Friends.” On it are pictures of children, teens, seniors and pets.

The exhibit, “A Moment in Time,” represents the work of greater Franklin County photographers. Every few months the exhibit and theme changes – putting on display pictures of summer fun, children, parents and home.

Photo selections now on display were made based on artistic value, quality, diversity and consistency with the stated theme.

They include: “Bob n Eddie” by Jane Naliboff; “Playground Playmates,” Sophie Wentworth; “Friends Forever,” Susan Gooch; “Safe in Your Arms,” Tami Wentworth; “Friends Enjoying Summer Days,” Laura Dunham; “Friends Forever,” Jane Naliboff; “Shady and Jack,” April Paul; “Three’s Company,” Tami Wentworth; “A Walk in the Park,” Walter Mular.

Also, “Forever Friends,” Jim Knox; “Cousins and Friends Forever,” Julie Sawyer; “My Sister, My Friend, My Fellow Mischief Maker,” Lori Kincaid; “Best Friends,” Julie Anne Lancaster; “Friends Always Share Secrets,” Julie Sawyer; “Dog Tired,” Cheryl Moody; “Gracie and Friends,” Austin Foss; “Warmth and Solitude,” Jim Knox; “Narrow Guage Strollers,” Diane Wing; “Cool Dudes,” Sheryll Walters; and “See That,” Walter Mularz.
