SHERIDAN, Wyo. (November 9, 2017) – Whitney Center for the Arts (WCA) is unveiling Joshua White’s Photographic Survey of the American Yard Thursday, November 16 with an artist’s talk at 4 p.m. and a reception from 5 – 7 p.m. The exhibit, featured in National Geographic, is a survey of the intricate plants, animals and insects White has been observing and interacting with throughout his life. Images are shot in a vintage style and set upon a sepia-toned background.

White’s work will be on view at the Whitney Center for the Arts Edward A. Whitney Gallery through January 14, 2018 and is free and open to the public. The Edward A. Whitney Gallery is open Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Sundays from 12 – 4p.m.

“Joshua White’s photographic survey is a welcome contrast to our distracted lives, and a personal homage to science and nature, shot primarily with his iPhone,” said Erin Hanke, WCA director. “It brings the fascinating, intricate patterns and details of our natural world into focus, made possible by one of the most significant technology advancements of our time.”

White is known for using photography, sculpture, and digital technology to address themes of memory, loss, science and nature. He believes that beauty is all around us, and that one doesn’t have to go very far to capture it. He received his MFA from Arizona State University and lives and works in West Jefferson, NC. He is an Assistant Professor of Art at Appalachian State University. Additions to White’s series can be seen at instagram.com/aphotographicsurvey.

White’s November 16 opening reception will feature Sheridan College Viol Consort, led by Dr. Mark Bergman at 5 p.m., and flute choir, led by Dr. Rachel Bergman at 6 p.m.
