Explore Julia Summers’ Captivating Photography at Orcas Senior Center

Visit Orcas Senior Center Monday through Friday, 9 am to 3 pm through April 19, to immerse yourself in the stunning photography of Julia Summers. This captivating exhibition will grace our walls throughout the months of January and February.

Julia’s artistic passion ignited at the age of eight when an art teacher, recognizing her unique perspective due to an eye patch and limited vision, handed her a camera with the encouragement to “show the world how you see it.” This marked the inception of her illustrious career as a photographer.

From overcoming adversity in school to making a profound impact on the world, Julia Summers has contributed her talent to renowned organizations such as the National Geographic, National Wildlife Federation, and the United Nations. Join us in celebrating her extraordinary vision and accomplishments at the Orcas Senior Center.
