The Gallery at SALT Studio presents the opening reception of “Somewhere In Between,” a selection of three of local photographer Gary Breece’s photographic projects: “We The People” a series of political photographs featuring black-and-white images depicting President Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign for presidency, as well as a series of Cuban photos commissioned by the Contemporary Art Museum in Havana; “San Fernando,” featuring images depicting the desert surrounding Los Angeles; and “Off Route,” Breece’s well-composed current series documenting the off-the-beaten-path people and places he encounters while traveling throughout the United States.
In his artist’s statement, Breece writes that the “Off Route” series photos are some of his most cherished. Breece took the photos when he reached the end of several roads:
“I chose to travel the beaten path of back roads in the region of my roots in order to find my way back home,” Breece writes. “It was a photographic journey and it healed me. I sought beauty and meaning in the images that surrounded me, and I wasn’t disappointed. Searching for them was medicinal and finding them sustained me.”
“Somewhere In Between” opens with a public reception 6 to 9 p.m. Friday Sept. 26, in coordination with Fourth Friday Gallery Nights, a monthly self-guided art crawl throughout Downtown Wilmington’s studios and galleries organized by the Arts Council of Wilmington and New Hanover County.
The show hangs through Oct. 17 at SALT Studio, 805 N. Fourth St., a working photography studio now solely run by local photographer Kelly Starbuck.
