MCNAIR EVANS: CONFESSIONS FOR A SON
OCTOBER 9 – NOVEMBER 21
OPENING RECEPTION AND BOOK SIGNING:
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 9, 7-9PM
In 2010, photographer McNair Evans returned to his childhood home in Laurinburg, North Carolina to retrace his father’s life and legacy after his death nine years earlier. His father’s passing had exposed the looming insolvency of their family farming businesses, ending five generations of family and financial stability. The economic impact on the family was immediate but the emotional impact lingered with Evans.

Stephen Shames: Bronx Boys
November 6-15, 20014
Opening reception with Steven Shames and some of the Bronx boys on November 6 from 6-8pm.
A 1977 assignment for Look magazine took award-winning photographer Stephen Shames to the Bronx, where he began photographing a group of boys coming of age in what was at the time one of the toughest and poorest neighborhoods in the United States. The Bronx boys lived on streets ravaged by poverty, drugs, violence, and gangs. They bonded together and raised themselves in “crews,” adolescent families they created for protection and companionship. Shames’s empathy for the boys earned their trust and respect, and over the next two decades, as the crack cocaine epidemic devastated the neighborhood, they allowed him extraordinary access into their lives on the street and in their homes.

The Portrait in Contemporary Photography
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 6pm–9pm
While the portrait is–on the surface–the central theme of the exhibition, it has been curated with a view to showing artworks that are highly mediated by the photographer, and demonstrate how a human subject is utilized, in putting forward a point of view about a larger concept.
