ARTIST STATEMENT: Close encounters with wildlife are increasingly rare, especially for those of us living in the city. My hope is that my photographs can act as a stand in for those encounters, and give everyone an opportunity to see our local wildlife up close. To take in the fine details of an elk’s knobby antlers, to count the whiskers on a red fox, to see the shine in a grizzly bear’s eyes, is to form a connection to these animals - one that can inspire us to conserve them and their homes. I remember sitting in my own local library as a child, flipping through pages of science books, enchanted by the photos in them. These photos of far away creatures were able to instill in me a love for species I had never encountered, and I hope my photos can do the same for others. I wholeheartedly believe that photography can turn people into powerful advocates for our wild spaces and their inhabitants, so thank you for taking the time to be here and I encourage you to photograph and share the nature around you too!

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Chrissy Shammas is a 27 year old nature and wildlife photographer from Chesapeake, Virginia, now residing right next door in Millcreek. After earning a B.F.A. in Cinema from Virginia Tech, she moved to Utah and has been balancing full time jobs and photography as she pursues her dreams. She is always on the lookout for critters, and for opportunities to share her work with the hope that it will inspire others to take care of wildlife and their habitats.

About the branch

The pleasing design of the Anderson-Foothill Branch has two unique elements as part of its plan. The first is a passive solar energy design that includes earth berming, window placement for solar heating, and zone supplemental heating/cooling. The second element of this 14,900 square foot community library built in 1985, expanded in 1992 and in 2002, is a modular design.

The Anderson-Foothill Branch has a meeting room available for public use with tables, chairs, and a projector screen. The Anderson-Foothill Branch's outdoor amphitheater is a popular location for summer concerts. Free parking is available to the north and south of the building, and free wi-fi access is provided throughout the library.
