SCAD presents Early American, a series of still life photographs by artist Sharon Core based on the paintings of early 19th century still life painter Raphaelle Peale.

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 8, to Sun, Oct 18 2009

Juxtaposed Generations: Images From Behind & In Front of the Lens

Gabriella Oviedo’s intimate images of her grandmother displays the vulnerability and often unseen angle that aging generally yields, while David Foster captures Ms. Oviedo using shadows and light to demonstrate how nature and the youthful form can be interwoven to create new landscapes. This juxtaposition of different styles of photography and generations lends a unique perspective on the cultural biases associated with beauty and aging in an honest and engaging manner.
