Telling Our Stories Photography Exhibit Comes To Brevard


April 3, 2009

A farmer with oxen at the end of the work day, a women's basketball team in bloomers, and a tobacco festival queen bedecked in a gown of dried tobacco leaves, are among the treasured photographs from the North Carolina State Archives traveling with the Telling Our Stories Photography Exhibit organized by the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources and Our State magazine.

This unique exhibit showcasing talented photographers throughout the state tells a visual story. It will be on display at the Transylvania County Library April 13-30.

Most of the photographs will be hung in the Rogow Room and available for viewing during regular library hours when the room is not being used. A smaller selection of photographs will be on display in the upstairs gallery and can be seen throughout regular library hours.

The touring exhibit presents 50 photographs from North Carolina and beyond. Contemporary images from some of the state's best professional photographers include a blue heron about to take flight, a reflective moment at a lake, and other top winners of the Our State magazine 2008 photography contest. The oldest photo in the exhibit is "The Oystering Crew" from 1884.

The photographs include North Carolina landmarks, such as the State Capitol in Raleigh and the Wright Brothers Memorial at Kitty Hawk. Also included are famous people from actor Andy Griffith starring in "The Lost Colony" outdoor drama in Manteo to President Franklin D. Roosevelt at a Raleigh parade.

Stop by the library to enjoy this special look at this state through the photographer's eye.
