    Event Description

    Water Portraits: Barbara Tyroler
    May 29 –August 25 2017
    Reception Thursday June 15, 5-7pm

    Barbara Tyroler is an artist, photographer, educator, and community worker based in Chapel Hill, NC. This exhibition features select works from her water portrait photography. Her water portraits of individuals, groups, and couples are semi-abstractions produced from within or outside of various swimming pools. In some photos, her subjects’ bodies are recognizable, in others, only an impressionistic surface is visible. Tyroler’s portraits are lyrical studies of form and design as well as the story of people and places visually transformed by the reflective properties of water.

    This exhibition coincides with the Barbara Tyroler’s workshop, “Considering Abstraction with the Camera” offered through Cullowhee Mountain Arts. The workshop will take place at Western Carolina University from June 11 – 16, 2017.

    MUSEUM HOURS: M-F 10am-4pm/ Th 10am-7pm
