Local galleries and artists are gearing up for this year’s fall season and the Water Valley Studio Crawl. With that in mind Yalo Studio has opened its doors to artist Brooke White, whose show Due South, True North opens on the night of the crawl, Sept. 21.
White, who works and teaches in the art department of the University of Mississippi, is a photographer who traveled the world capturing the landscapes of places near and far. She has been to Tanzania, Vietnam, Mexico, Thailand and many other countries.
Last year she lived in India as a Fulbright Senior Scholar shooting photographs. She has had exhibitions of her photographs and video art in various venues in the United States and abroad.
White is interested in landscape and how that shapes the lives of the people who inhabit it. Born and raised in the Northeast, White moved to the Deep South 10 years ago. This current show explores the landscapes of both areas and how they shape the identities of the people who dwell in each. The show will be open through Oct. 26.
Also gearing up for the Studio Crawl is Bozarts where the gallery is packed with pottery for the New Fired Art exhibit, which is being done in conjunction with the University of Mississippi and their show Recollecting: 1980-2012 Works by Ron Dale.
Bozarts and Yalo Studio are located on Main Street and will have their receptions during the crawl. There will be more information on that next week.
