Photography at the CAC brings your Autumn Awe

The Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/ Douglas County (CAC) presents an uplifting exhibit for your Autumn season. Five artists have experimented with their camera over the past year during life’s ups and downs. Stephen Armstrong, Crystal Berry, Chris Craig, Carolyn Meltzer, and Liz Stubbs bring you “Tunnels of Light” – A Photography Exhibit, on display October 11 – November 18, weekdays 9 am – 5 pm. An opening reception will be celebrated on Thursday, November 4, 5-7 pm, hosted by Steve Pritchard Woodturning.

Liz Stubbs and Penny Treese combine the complex and intriguing techniques of photography and encaustics to create a collection about self-perception and positivity. Their mixed-media collections arise from their commitment to creating work infused with freedom and energy. Carolyn Meltzer celebrates her travels through her photographs. She is a physician radiologist during the day while photography becomes the creative complement to her medical imaging career. Meltzer’s photographs have been featured in shows in Atlanta, New York, New Orleans, Portland, Los Angeles, Berlin, Barcelona, and Athens. Chris Craig turns information into action with his photographs. With a plethora of interests, such as automotive modification and graphic design, he sees the world through projects he builds with his own two hands – especially the pictures he takes. Crystal Berry photographs peaceful scenes and moments that appeal to her as she goes about life. She loves art that tells a story about the human experience or the beauty of everyday life, and only recently began to get serious about photography.  Specializing in wedding and portrait photography, Stephen Armstrong picked up his first camera at ten years old. He continues to venture and explore various photography styles, while teaching students alongside him to have fun with expression behind the lens.

No matter what tunnel you might be going through, come view the art that reminds you to enjoy the moment and see the world for whatever amount of light you can perceive. It’s a collection of high-contrast work, filling the gallery with brightness. In the words of Penny Treese and Liz Stubbs, “[we should] share the light within each of us.” Come view the work that became artists’ light within the dark, showcasing a wide range of experimental colors alongside black and white imagery.

The Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/ Douglas County, located at 8652 Campbellton Street in historic downtown Douglasville, Georgia, is open Mondays through Fridays, 9 am to 5 pm.
