Where We Find Home: Recent Southern Photography
Cameron Gallery at The Scrap Exchange, The Shoppes at Lakewood, 2050 Chapel Hill Road
Third Friday reception: 6 to 9 p.m.; on view through Oct. 14
As a prelude event for the Click! Festival, The Scrap Exchange is partnering with professional photographer Jeremy Lange to present its first photography exhibition. The exhibition, a collection of 12 photographers from around the country, explores the contemporary landscape of the Southern United States. With an emphasis on the voice of the photographer, the images are direct, personal and at times experimental, but ultimately reach out into the larger world to engage, question and embrace the places in which we work and live. Contributing photographers include Ben Alper, DL Anderson, Aaron Canipe, Justin Cook, Phyllis Dooney, Matt Eich, Preston Gannaway, Lissa Gotwals, Jeremy M. Lange, Jared Soares, Aaron Turner and Will Warasila.
The evening’s festivities include light snacks and drinks, as well as free art-making in the Make and Take. This event is free and the public is warmly welcomed.
