The Photography Program in the Department of Art & Design is excited to bring McNair Evans to ETSU next Friday, February 16 for studio visits with graduate students and a public lecture at 6pm in the Ball Hall Auditorium. McNair grew up in the farming town of Laurinburg, NC less than 300 miles from Johnson City, TN, where he returned in 2010 to retrace his father’s life and legacy for his first monograph CONFESSIONS FOR A SON. He recently exhibited photographs at SF Camerawork with ETSU Professor Emeritus Mike Smith in a group exhibition exploring paths of mentorship and artistic collaboration. He is a 2016 Guggenheim Fellow currently living in San Francisco whose ongoing work examines themes of shared experiences and identity. Thank you to Tracey Morgan Gallery for generously sponsoring McNair’s talk and the DoubleTree Hotel for hosting his visit. All are welcome and encouraged to join us for his lecture next week.

Hannah Frieser writes: Photography buildings can take many forms. Architectural photographers, for example, take excruciating care to right every angle and present every building in its bare architectural facts. In Tema Stauffer's images, however, buildings are never just buildings. Instead they speak of years past and lives lived in them. The resulting images covey a strong sense of community. Stauffer further emphasizes community with portraits she interlaces into the series. Many images are bathed in the rich light so familiar to Upstate New Yorkers, adding gravitas to the buildings' place in people's lives. As the backbone of neighborhoods, these buildings are here now, but is is clear as the light fades and the facades crumble that things are changing and that neither building nor people might not be here much longer.
I will be traveling to Fort Collins for the reception on Friday, October 20th from 5:30 - 7:30pm and portfolio reviews with Hannah Frieser and Hamidah Glasgow the following day.
