The Persevere Exhibition seeks to know how photography helped you survive 2020–2021. For many, the camera served as a tool of therapeutic intervention during the pandemic. Whether via a cell phone, DSLR, or 4X5, a camera helped rebalance and care for your emotional, spiritual, artistic, and mental needs. The process of creating a photographic image soothed our souls.

CLICK! Event PS118 Gallery & Event Space: From Fallujah


From Fallujah is a group photography exhibit featuring the work of four emerging Iraqi photographers. The exhibit proceeds from the idea that the best way to learn about a place is through the people who live there. Our purpose is to simply make another story about Fallujah visible to American audiences, one that departs from its militarized meaning in public memory. Fallujah is not an Iraq War battlefield. It is a place where people work, attend school, and frequent public spaces wanting what we all want, a chance to peaceably choose our lives.

CLICK! Event Cassilhaus: Passage


About a year ago I discovered the work of Gail Samuelson and Karen “KZ” Zusman while doing a deep dive on the website A Yellow Rose Project, a project curated by Meg Griffith and Frances Jakubek celebrating the 100th anniversary of Women’s suffrage. Gail works almost entirely in color and KZ in black and white. Despite different sensibilities in the work I felt a kinship between the two artists and decided I wanted to show their work together. Passage seemed an apt metaphor and through line for both artists’ work. — Frank Konhaus

RSVP to PassageOpening@cassilhaus.com. All visitors must be vaccinated and wear masks.

Together the individual portraits contribute to a community vision board that aspires towards a better future for LGBTQIA+ folks and the world at large.

The Fruit:
Crowning Glory


Crowning Glory: Samantha Everette

One of the most intimate yet universal experiences of Black women is the braiding of our hair. Our African and Indigenous ancestry endows hair with significance beyond physical beauty; our long flowing braids are a conduit for spiritual anointing, a symbol of tribe and belonging, and a method for intergenerational bonding.

CAM Raleigh: Mikael Owunna – Infinite Essence


Infinite Essence is my response to pervasive media images of Black people being shot and killed by police. What if the images you see of people who look like you are dead and dying bodies? How does that affect the way you move through the world and enter your body? With this series, I’ve set about on a quest to recast the Black body as the cosmos and eternal.

PS118 Gallery & Event Space: Portraits (Trauma)


Tim Walter and the collaborators work over a period of four hours or more, with the participants slowly covering and re-covering themselves in a range of materials, entering a state of subconscious mental flow. The goal is to make visible emotions of anger, dismay, grief — and sometimes resilience and growth. The photos are part documentary, part fine art.

Not Out of the Woods Yet: Holden Richards

Not Out of the Woods Yet is a collection of photographic prints made during the last two years of the Covid pandemic. Seeking refuge from the news of the day I would take long walks with my large format cameras. These negatives were later contact printed during my stay at Penland School of Craft where during a winter residency I was the sole artist. This collection is emblematic of that time for me. — Holden Richards

New Decade / New Images by JP Trostle

“While following a happy accident down the rabbit hole, I discovered a world of light and motion that exists only inside the camera. My abstract snapshots explore texture and movement through an unconventional use of digital photography, reshaping familiar locations into ethereal landscapes, and capturing the impression of memory and emotion.” — JP Trostle

Kontek Systems: Picture in Picture


Huston Paschal, an experienced photo curator friend of mine, advised me to look at the last 10 pieces we had added to our then small collection and suggested that a theme might emerge from some common thread. To my complete surprise, 9 of the 10 had some sort of “framed” image inside the larger photograph. I had no idea what that meant, but clearly there was something subconscious going on that drew me to these photographs and compelled me to see them as a collection.

Through This Lens: Fern Nesson


I use my camera to create life and to defy death. My goal is create living works of art that embody the moment when mass becomes energy. They are never constructed. Everything in them is real.

These images capture a moment of transcendence. In that moment, we know ourselves to be infinite, inextricably a part of the universe. We perceive that, when we die, we will merely change in form. Nothing is ever lost. The energy of those we loved exists forever all around us. And we will too.

Alterations

My granny was the greatest love and loss of my childhood. Growing older I’ve discovered that I knew very little about her as a person, remembering only the love that was given. These photographs serve as metaphors for the way we alter, mend, and piece together memories, in order to make sense of what we have lost.
