Photography is arguably the region’s most widely practiced artistic medium. From analogue to digital to experimental, the range of photographic techniques practiced throughout North Carolina is both broad and deep. Across County Lines: Contemporary Photography from the Piedmont presents work by 39 artists in a group exhibition exploring the striking cross-currents of photographic work happening in the Piedmont region of this state. The exhibition blends the photography of both emerging and established photographers, with images dating from the 1970s to the present day. Subject matter ranges from portraiture and landscape to the conceptual, abstract and experimental. The artists, all of whom have close connections to North Carolina, include Ben Alper, D.L. Anderson, Bill Bamberger, Endia Beal, Titus Brooks Heagins, Diego Camposeco, Aaron Canipe, Kennedi Carter, Faith Couch, Phyllis Dooney, Tim Duffy, Heather Evans Smith, William Ferris, Maya Freelon, Tamika Galanis, Michael Galinksy, Susan Harbage Page, Alex Harris, Harrison Haynes, Caroline Hickman Vaughan, Colby Katz, Anna Kipervaser and On Look Films, Jeremy Lange, Bryce Lankard, Jim Lee, Elizabeth Matheson, Lisa McCarty, Lindsay Metivier, Tom Rankin, John Rosenthal, Margaret Sartor, MJ Sharp, Christopher Sims, Leah Sobsey and Tim Telkamp, Hồng-Ân Trương and Hương Ngô, Burk Uzzle and Gesche Würfel.
Their images provide as many views of the world through a variety of techniques, all capturing the immediacy and possibility of the photographic medium.
