Moss Arts Center fall exhibitions: Sheila Pree Bright and Larry Fink
Sheila Pree Bright, "A Beautiful Struggle"
Based in Atlanta, Sheila Pree Bright is an acclaimed fine arts photographer whose work conveys in stark, honest, and moving terms the gatherings of recent years in protest of police violence and sociopolitical inequities. Presented in this exhibition are large scale photographs that poignantly portray the Black Lives Matter movement and responses to police shootings in Atlanta; Ferguson; Baltimore; Washington, D.C.; and Baton Rouge. Interspersed throughout the exhibition as a counterpoint to preconceived stereotypes are images of middle class-African American suburban communities. Also featured is a new work commissioned by the Moss Arts Center specifically for this exhibition.
Larry Fink, "Gathering: Pearls and Polyester"
A selection of photographic prints by Larry Fink spotlights the role of clothing and adornment in celebratory gatherings in two distinct American cultures during the 1970s and '80s: the glamorous high society of New York City and the spirited country life of Martins Creek, Pennsylvania. Larry Fink is an acclaimed American photographer best known for his intimate black and white images of lively social events across various class and cultural spaces.
