Each photograph in the society’s exhibit depicts an interpretation of the theme “One Moment in Time.
One of the exhibitors is Jim Anderson, who was taught art by Mr. Gale at Southport High School. Anderson won a Gold Key Award from L.S. Ayres for one of his projects, but he heeded the siren call of computers and information technology for nearly 40 years and had a fulfilling career with Herff Jones.
After retiring he returned to his roots in art and has spent the past two years building a portfolio of photos. His entry in the show is titled “Dissolving Realties,” and he took the picture along Buffalo Creek south of Baxter YMCA around noon on a frigid March 3.
“The Buffalo Creek eco system is amazing, and on that day the bright sun created some beautiful prismatic effects, amazing colors and interesting patterns in the ice,” Anderson said. “In the upper left corner there appears to a woman’s face with long icy hair flowing around her. The rest of the picture strikes me as clouds of water and ice dissolving around her.”
An opening reception will be held from 5-7 p.m. April 5 at the center, 2450 Shelby St., where musical entertainment will be provided by Perry Meridian High School’s string quartet.
The shows run through April 26 may be viewed for free from noon-5 p.m. Tuesday, 3-9 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
