The Association for Visual Arts (AVA) in Chattanooga is currently hosting an exhibition celebrating the photographic medium.
The group show consisting of four artists from the Southeast includes a variety of styles, subject matter, and methods.
John Allen’s work, captured with a color pinhole camera, depicts the dark, claustrophobic spaces of caves.
Ryan Hoover takes an interdisciplinary approach, using a variety of time-based and non-time-based processes and techniques, both analog and digital.
Farron Kilburn describes herself as a “careful observer of the world.” Interested in social justice, her photos come from her time in Havana, and confront the tension between living under an old, crumbling regime with little access to the outside world and celebrating a lively culture and rebellious people ready to burst into the rest of the world.
Michael Largent’s works are part of a recent series combining the randomness of “action photography” with a systematic approach to the post-production process.
AVA is located at 30 Frazier Ave. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Learn more at avarts.org.
