William Christenberry was born in Hale County, Alabama in 1936. A master of multiple media, he works with photographs, drawings, sculptures, and paintings. Known worldwide as a pioneer in the field of color photography he will talk about his poetic documentation of the vernacular landscape of the American South, an ongoing series that blends the descriptive with the mythic.
Widely exhibited and published (including a comprehensive new book just released by Aperture), Christenberry’s work can be found in most major museums and collections.
You can find more info on Christenberry at MoCP, and at Alabama Arts Council. These links courtesy of the amusing and interesting blog Meet Me in Ataxia, Baby.

Photographer Art Rogers will make an introductory presentation. For more than 30 years Art Rogers has worked as a portrait photographer in Point Reyes Station, California. His visual record of the West Marin County rural community has now become a multigenerational document. Men, women, children, pets and livestock all come together in what has become known as “The Point Reyes Family Album”.
Rogers’s awards include a Guggenheim Fellowship and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Marin Arts Council.
