Opening Reception of Fresh Perspectives and Within & Without

On May 5 from 6 to 8p.m., Carbondale Arts’ will open two photography exhibits, Fresh Perceptions: Middle Schools Students Discovering Ordinary Magic, and Within & Without: A Unique Look at Carbondale by Sue Drinker and Dick Durrance. Fresh Perceptions is curated by Nannette Weinhold who teaches Middle School students to use the practice of Contemplative Photography, which invites the students to see the the world through unfiltered eyes; without bias, judgment, expectations or labels. Within & Without is a result of Sue Drinker and Dick Durrance’s prowling adventures through the streets and alleys of Carbondale with their iPhones, capturing unusual glimpses of this funky little town. Everyday items take on a new dimension when seen through the eyes of this world famous team of photographers. The opening reception is free and open to the public. Both exhibitions will be open to the public from 9a.m. to 5p.m. weekdays and 10a.m. to 2p.m. on Saturdays  May 5 through 26 at the R2 Gallery at The Launchpad.
