The entire exhibit will be on display at the Yellow Springs Art Council’s new gallery, 111 Corry Street, with an opening on Friday, April 20 from 6 to 9 p.m. featuring ’70s era music, food and trivia.

    When in 1980 local artist Nancy Howell-Koehler needed a portrait taken for her new book, it didn’t seem appropriate that she — a fine art photographer — hire someone to do it. So she devised a way to take a self-portrait using a long shutter release cord. Later, she used the same method to take photos of Yellow Springers.
