Land and Sea: Amelia and the Southern Sea Islands will hang in the Brenau University President's Gallery from August 18 - October 12, 2008. The exhibit features two distinct, yet related bodies of work. The first is a series of color seascapes I photographed at Fernandina Beach over the past year or so. The second is a collection of black and white prints that explore the intimate details, or "fingerprints," of the southernmost Sea Islands--a string of low barrier islands off the coast of South Caroina, Georgia and northern Florida.
The President's Gallery is located upstairs in the Pearce Auditorium building on Brenau University's front campus in Gainesville, Georgia. Gallery hours are Tuesday - Friday, 10am - 4pm and Sunday, 2pm - 5pm. The Galleries will be closed August 31-September 1 for the Labor Day holiday.
I will give an Artist Talk on Tuesday, September 9 from 5:30-6:30pm in the President's Gallery. The talk will be followed by a reception for all current Brenau Galleries exhibits from 6:30 - 8:30pm in each of the galleries. Other exhibits include Body Image: Beyond Appearance and a unique collection of Polaroid photographs by Andy Warhol. The public is invited to attend.
