About:

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 more than 35 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 reside in North Carolina and either live or have lived in the immediate region, include Ben Alper, DL Anderson, Endia Beal, Diego Camposeco, Faith Couch, Phyllis Dooney, Tamika Galanis, Michael Galinsky, Alex Harris, Titus Brooks Heagins, Jim Lee, Elizabeth Matheson, Lisa McCarty, MJ Sharp, Chris Sims, Hồng-Ân Trương, Gesche Würfel, and many others. Their images provide as many views of the world through a variety of techniques, all capturing the immediacy and possibility of the photographic medium. Several photographs from the Nasher Museum’s permanent collection will also be included in the exhibition, including those by Susan Harbage Page and Burk Uzzle.
