What began as a simple project to document change in rural Nolensville has evolved into an invitation to present a satellite Pop-Up Show during the prestigious Slow Exposures photography festival held in Pike County Georgia September 15th through 18th.
With help from many and at the risk of omitting someone, I want to publicly thank the following:
John Bennette – the juror and curator of the Slow Exposures Pop-Up Show
John Bennette is a collector, curator and champion of artists. Bennette has written for a number of publications including 21st Journal of Photography. He has been a portfolio reviewer at events including Fotofest, Rhubarb-rhubarb, Photolucida and Atlanta Celebrates Photography. He works with the committees of a number of charity based photography groups including FWAB. Bennette was former Art Director and Art Editor for South by South East Photography Magazine.
Chris Curry and the Slow Exposures Committees and Advisory Committee.
Sandy Burr and Sharon Brown Christopher – f/4 Studio members who have provided technical support, editing support, and listening ears during the evolution and development of this project.
Mr. Pete – local Nolensville native who has opened doors to many Nolensville private farms and locations as well as provided historical insight for the Nolensville project.
Jim Levins – Brentwood Goin’ Postal owner and friend who professionally printed flyers for the exhibit.
Jack Henry – my husband who has supported this project in too many ways to express.
The exhibit is titled A Quiet Celebration of Rural Nolensville and “invites the viewer into a quiet and peaceful reflection on a simple way of life and to experience a moment of nostalgia of Nolensville and the American South.”
All sixteen images in the exhibit are offered for purchase, however the image below – “Celebrating Childhood” – will be offered for raffle at the Do Good Dinner during the Saturday night Slow Exposures festivities.
Join me either in person at Slow Exposures or in spirit with your ‘best wishes’ for a successful exhibit!
