Sonya Moyer Photography, A New Art Exhibit, opens at Frederick Living

A new photography exhibit at Frederick Living, Frederick, PA, features the work of local artist Sonya Moyer. Sonya and her husband, Bill, skillfully restored their 18th century stone farmhouse on the hillside, overlooking the bucolic valley below where the light of sunrise and sunset continue to inspire her.

Her photographs are reflective and nostalgic.
