Fine Arts Photography Reflects Rural South in FREE Exhibition this September, 2010‏

SlowExposures is the nationally recognized juried photo exhibition held annually in Pike County that faithfully captures the rural South's distinct history and character through fine art photography.

The eighth showcase of photography opens on Friday, September 17th, 2010, in the 1887 R. F. Strickland Building (listed on the National Register of Historic Places), a late nineteenth century mercantile store, in historic Concord, Pike County Georgia, located one hour south of the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

The photo celebration, which lasts for two event-filled weekends, includes salons and portfolio reviews; a local children’s photography contest; satellite shows and a celebratory ball on Saturday, September 25th. SlowExposures 2010 concludes on Sunday, September 26th.

In addition to the primary collection of over ninety photos, a self-driving road tour features a map of the satellite shows and historic sites throughout picturesque Pike County.

SlowExposures is the annual fundraiser of Pike Historic Preservation and is dedicated to supporting the historical and cultural heritage of the rural South through contemporary photography.

All proceeds from the show and the accompanying events go toward the preservation of Pike County's historic buildings and landscapes.

SlowExposures attracts hundreds of visitors each fall to central Georgia’s bucolic surroundings.
