Photographs from the Collection, Eleanor D. Wilson Museum, Richard Wetherill Visual Arts Center

Since its invention in the nineteenth century, photography has been alternatingly viewed as a way to faithfully represent the world and an opportunity to portray illusion. Curated from the Eleanor D. Wilson Museum's collection, this exhibition includes photographs by Nancy Spencer, Sally Mann, Eudora Welty, and Carrie Mae Weems. Representing a spectrum of styles and perspectives, these diverse works hint at the field of observation that the camera's lens provides.

Framing and Care of Works on Paper workshop, Saturday, November 1 , 10 am, Room 111, Wetherill Visual Arts Center. Exhibition through November 22. Hours are Tuesday-Friday, 10 am-4 pm; Saturday, 1-5 pm.
