UNION, NJ – Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, a new exhibit, entitled “Irish Culture and History,” opened at the Les Malamut Art Gallery at the Union Public Library on Saturday, highlighting the photographs of Carol Martin and displays of Irish heritage.

“I’m an amateur photographer whose passion in life is traveling through Ireland taking photographs of the magnificent countryside,” said Martin. 

Martin said after she retired from Merck & Co in 2004, her children suggested she frame some of her photographs and sell them. “I was reluctant to do it, but it has really opened up a whole new adventure in my life and I have met so many wonderful people,” said Martin.

Shirley Malamut, gallery co-founder, said, “Carol’s work is so beautiful.  You actually feel as though you’re in her photos. This is a fantastic history.”

Kathleen Holmes, this year’s Union County St. Patrick’s Day Parade General Chairperson, said she was contacted by the library about helping put together this exhibit. “Of course, we jumped right on it.  I invite everyone to come down and see it.”

“It’s hard to take a bad picture in Ireland,” said Martin.

The “Irish Culture and History” exhibit will be at the Les Malamut Gallery, at the Union Public Library (1980 Morris Ave., Union), until April 30.

Shirley Malamut, gallery co-founder, said, “Carol’s work is so beautiful. You actually feel as though you’re in the areas in her photos. This is a fantastic history."
