Artist reception at coffee shop Sunday

Amesbury photographer Nannette Poirier will celebrate the unveiling of her art exhibit at Plum Island Coffee Roasters this month with a reception at the Newburyport shop on Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m.

Poirer’s photography exhibit includes images she’s captured throughout New England.

Poirer calls travel and photography her two greatest passions, and she loves to meet people from other countries and cultures. Through her photography, she seeks to share her perspective of her journey.

“Photography makes me take a closer look at all the beauty around me and allows me to experience the peace of becoming one with my environment,” she wrote in a press release. “Photography has made me better appreciate my own home. New England has so much beauty everywhere. One doesn’t have to travel far from home to find it. “
