Photo gallery opens in Waynesville

The Lonebackpacker Gallery of World Photography, owned by artist Adam Malis, opened last week on Depot Street in Waynesville.

The gallery showcases fine art photography taken on all seven continents from the perspective of the solo traveler.  

Malis, a self-taught photographer, spent the majority of his time between 1994 and 2005 traveling the world with not much more than a backpack, guidebook, pen, paper and point and shoot camera in his possession. Among his destinations were North Korea, China, Africa and Bhutan.

“I am humbled by the response the exhibit has received so far. We are thrilled to be a new addition to Western North Carolina’s art scene.  We look forward to becoming a permanent fixture in town and a ‘must see’ on people’s list when visiting the area!” Malis said.

The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. everyday, except Wednesdays and Sundays. All of the artwork on display is available for purchase at an affordable price.
