The Mad River Valley has several sheep farmers raising a variety of breeds. “Sheep are wonderfully expressive,” noted Silbernagel. “They have large eyes and soft muzzles. Unlike curious cows, who rush my lens and try to lick me, sheep in the field are more chill.”

Silbernagel is known for her portraits of people and pets. She is the person behind the dog blog, In addition to her limited print run of sheep portraits, her pop-up photo show will offer prints of colorful butterflies, cow portraits, and her take on an iconic local landscape.
