Artemas Mott. Now that’s not a name you hear every day but if you take a few minutes to visit his website, www.artemasphotography.com, and view his photographs, you’ll see that it is a name you are likely to be hearing more of very soon. Artemas has moved his photography business and studio to Monkton and, being a family man himself, is eager to get to know the families in the community. He specializes in wedding and portrait
photography and is very good at what he does. If you’d like an opportunity to meet Artemas and check out his
new studio, you are welcome to join him on April 13th from 6-9pm for an “Open House”. There will be light
hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. For more details, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, here’s what we’ve learned about Artemas so far…

Piano Performance at Towson (State) University.

good in everyone.

dream about a world where people can find peace with each other.
