William Christenberry: Site/Possession Opens

Friday, November 14, 2008

The opening of William Christenberry: Site/Possession was a great opportunity to view Christenberry’s work and discuss it with others as we enjoyed the reception Friday, November 7th. Christenberry is frequently the subject of national acclaim for his photographs of rural Alabama, but this exhibition offers the chance to experience a more complete representation of his life and work.

There are drawings, paintings, photographs, constructions and the Klan Room Tableau. The work included shows the many sides of rural Alabama, both positive and negative, and includes many drawings from the artist’s collection that have not been previously exhibited. There are opportunities coming up to learn more about this exhibition, photography focusing on the narrative of place, and William Christenberry:
