A unique exhibit featuring works from artists and photographers across Mississippi will open at the Union County Heritage Museum in New Albany this Friday night, August 4, from 6 – 7:30.
More than 50 entries from 13 exhibitors pairs photographers from the Southern Light Photography Club in the  “The Art of Photography ” exhibit with artists that interpret their photos.
“This makes for a deeper and more vital exhibit and lets one look from not just one perspective, but two,” said Museum Director Jill Smith. Scenes from the Florida Panhandle, North Carolina to eagles nesting on the Tenn Tom Waterway and many more are part of this exhibit.
One photograph, made by Joy Dey, of a man in New Delhi, India, is interpreted multiple ways – by an oil painting, a watercolor painting, a poem, a traditional painting from India, as well as a modern piece of artwork.
Works accompany the photographs are both two and three dimensional.  Pastels, charcoal, oils, acrylic, and wood are all mediums used by the artists.
Two Union County artists give an up close look at a thistle flower.  Photographer Heather Tisdale asked artist Rebecca Browning to interpret her photo of a thistle. Their work is one of the many highlights of this exhibit.
