The 2017 Click! Festival featured over 35 exhibitions. Photography blanketed the triangle and extended all the way to Greensboro. There were simply too many highlights to name them all, but several deserve special mention. We are extremely grateful for the hard work of the Durham Public Arts Council and Chris Ogden that brought the FENCE to Durham. The largest outdoor exhibition of photography featured an entire section of local artists and three of the artists on the national section were in attendance during the festival: Aline Smithson, RJ Kern, and our own Lori Vrba. We couldn’t be more pleased to work with a new partner, UNC’s Arts Everywhere program and the ever-resourceful, Rachel Ash to mount the exhibition of Louie Palu’s “Garmsir Marines” in Battle Forest around the Forest Theater on UNC’s campus. Area luminary, Alex Harris, had two exhibitions, including a retrospective at Craven Allen gallery. Raleigh hosted a number of great shows, including the “Sleight of Hand” show at VAE, “Instantaneous: The Polaroid Legacy” and the results of the PIC grant tintype work by Leah Sobsey and Tim Telkamp, both at a brand new venue and partner, Anchorlight. Cassilhaus worked with guest curator, Courtney Reid-Eaton, to create “En/Gender, which featured our cover artist, Gabriel Garcia Roman. First time partner, the Greensboro Project Space, hosted the traveling exhibition, “Intrusions of Grace”, by artists Anne Berry and Lori Vrba. And finally, Click! presented our juried exhibition, “Resist”, at the brand new Watts Gallery.
