Double Exposure Photography and Art Exhibit

This past Friday evening was our local Third Friday Art Walk which featured the Camera Club's Double Exposure Exhibit.

The Chatham County (NC) Camera Club posted some of their member's photographs and local artists were asked to paint, sculpt or otherwise interpret the photos in their medium of choice.  Then last Friday the art was exhibited alongside the original photograph.  It was fun to be a part of this exhibit but even more fun to see the exhibit!

The best part was that my sister and brother in law were here from Colorado and attended the exhibit with my husband and I.  We had a good weekend just visiting and since my sister is a professional photographer, I think she enjoyed the exhibit.  We also drove around just looking for interesting photo ops.

All in all, we had a great weekend.

Great idea and some lovely interpretations by the artists. Was the show one-day only or will it run for a while?

Thanks, Sue. I hate to admit this but I really don't know if it will run longer or not. I think it will but we weren't told a whole lot about the details of the show. I emailed about when to pick up my painting but haven't heard back. I think it may run until the next Art Walk but I'm really not sure!
