Reception: October 15th, 6-9 pm for Third Friday Durham Art Walk & Gallery Crawl
Pieces of Light is a photography exhibition curated from the diverse perspectives of forty-eight photographers across the southeastern region of the US. During the COVID-19 pandemic, these photographers used their cameras as a tool for connecting intimately with their daily lives, the natural world, and their immediate communities. This exhibition is a phenomenal outpouring of emotional and creative responses to the pandemic and stands as a collective and commemorative visual narrative that touches both the pain and possibilities of hope, community resilience, and strength. At the heart of this exhibition is a passion for courageous engagement and a celebration of the transformative and spiritual power of art and image-making.
A reception will be held on October 15th, 6-9 pm with additional pop-up installations by Anna Norton and Liz Williams and will feature additional works created by photographers who explored their intimate relationship to the land including Mike Belleme, Shauna Caldwell, Evan Anderson, Anna Norton, Jack Sorokin, Jesse Barber, and Dennis Szerszen.
Pieces of Light is a collaborative partnership between the Six Feet Photography Project, Tom Rankin, the director of the Experimental and Documentary Arts MFA program at Duke University, the Durham Arts Council, and Click! Photography Festival. The Pieces of Light exhibition is funded by the Mary Duke Biddle Foundation.
