Portraits of the Fighting Lady

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Imaging Arts Gallery will exhibit a series of portraits by local photographers of veterans who have served, or serve today, on the USS Yorktown.  These veterans are from the World War II through the Vietnam War eras and represent several different branches of service.

The portraits were taken in several locations aboard the Fighting Lady.  The portraits are for sale and funds raised will go toward a temporary exhibit space to expand educational opportunities and what the museum can showcase.

The exhibit opens Friday, November 5 with a private auction of portraits from 5-8 p.m., and the show will open to the public after that.  Tickets for the private event are $50.  Imaging Arts Gallery is located at 175 King Street.
