The Tracks of Art Video & Photos

For the Tracks of Art this past May, I wore a couple of different hats. Not only did my mini-documentaries about Holly Springs make their offline debut, but I also photographed the event to further promote the arts in Holly Springs. As someone told me, the work was very "meta".

And, I took things one step further by putting together a slideshow of the photos from the Tracks of Art. Check it out below! The music is an original song from one of the musicians who performed at the event, Merit Koch. You can hear more of her music at: http://www.meritkoch.com

Special thanks to the Holly Springs Depot for putting together such a fabulous event, and for promoting the arts! As usual, it was a blast to participate, and photograph!

Below are a handful of photos from the event, including a glimpse at the coverage from the South Reporter newspaper in Holly Springs. We had a great full-color photo spread!

Pics from the Tracks of Art Premiere

Thanks everyone for coming out to the Tracks of Art in May! The premiere of my documentaries at was an incredible event! It was the first time I've gotten to hear feedback about my work from an audience, and see their level of engagement in the stories. I'm very happy to report that the room was full throughout the day, and audiences stuck around to see all four video stories!

Fingers crossed, I think we've succeeded in raising the profile of Holly Springs, and the Holly Springs Depot! Here's a few photos of our theater room, plus the vinyl shirt Beckey Kemp created for the event.

Projects, Books, & Museums

In February, I returned to my favorite museum, the Marshall County Historical Museum, to shoot two separate projects. One, yes, is another video in my series that highlights some of Holly Springs' creative residents. And the second? Well, all I can do is tease it on the blog and say, "it's a book." More information coming soon, plus *lots* of photos.


In other news, the Kate Freeman Clark Art Gallery will be unveiling a collection of newly restored paintings in April! This one has little to do with me, but I'm excited to see more of Kate's art in person (especially since I've written about her in the past, and have photographed her things several times). More information is attached below, or you can visit the gallery's official Facebook invite to follow the event.

Via the Kate Freeman Clark Art Gallery - "A collection of Kate Freeman Clark's paintings can now be seen in the original vibrant colors for which she was known when she showed her work in prestigious art venues in New York, Boston, Philadelphia and Washington. Thirty of her best paintings have now been restored to their original vibrance and the difference is remarkable. An Open House is set to celebrate this historic event. Tickets are $10 for members and $20 for non-members."
