A picture, as they say, is worth 1,000 words.
As a writer, I’m used to coming up with ways of stringing together words to create the most clarity and impact, but I’m always fascinated with the ways that shading, editing, cropping, zooming and lighting can tell a story without any words whatsoever. It’s probably no surprise, then, that one of my favorite things to do is browse the Arts and Photography exhibit.
North Carolina has some very talented professional, amateur and student artists, and the work displayed here at the Fair is a testament to that. Here are a few of my favorite photographs in the exhibit, but you’ll find a large variety of artwork, including paintings, 3-D wire sculptures, masks and more. Check out all of the entries in the left side of the Scott Building inside Gate 11.
