Photographer exhibit, reception at WCU

Written by 

Photographer Dr. Rick Cary will have a reception for his exhibit “Credo: Documentary Photographs of Signs Following Believers” from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 22, in the Star Atrium at the Western Carolina University Fine Art Museum. An artist talk will be at 5 p.m. in room BAC 130.

Cary practices what he terms “photo-ethnography.” His work as a documentary photographer is rooted in his academic training in both photography and in the psychology of art. He presents the exhibition Credo after 12 years of research with the Rev. Jimmy Morrow at the Church of God in Jesus’ Name Only in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. 

Cary is a professor of art and chairman of the Division of Professional Programs at Mars Hill College.
