A dozen portraits in Robert Shetterly’s “Americans Who Tell the Truth” series are on display at the Norway Memorial Library. Three are shown, above, with Beth Kane, who organized the exhibit at the library. Shetterly’s portraits are of Jim Hightower, a populist author and speaker, bottom left; Camilo Mejia, an ex-soldier in Iraq and now peace activist, top left; and Kathy Kelly, a nonviolence advocate on many different issues, including toys and medicine for children, poverty and land use. The public may view the exhibit during regular library hours today and throughout April. With his nonpartisan portraits, Shetterly, who lives in Brooksville, seeks, according to www.americanswhotellthetruth.org., to “remind people of the dignity, courage and importance of some of America’s truth tellers and, whether you agree with a particular subject’s point of view, to create dialogue that will help each of us figure out which truths we value most as citizens in a democracy.”
