Ocracoke’s Ann Ehringhaus is one of eight regional artists who will be featured in the nationwide outdoor Photoville Pecha Kucha Event exhibit in Durham Oct. 6 to Nov. 15.
The artwork is on a vinyl banner in the green space between Main Street and Chapel Hill Street adjacent to City Hall and the historic Black Wall Street district.
Photoville FENCE is a year-round public photography project exhibited in major parks and downtowns throughout the United States and Canada.
It spotlights a wide range of photographic and lens-based stories that elevates the understanding of the world-at-large and issues close to home by exploring the universal themes of people, streets, play, creatures, home, food and nature.
Durham’s participation is part of the Click! Photography Festival in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill.
“My images are in the category of Home and show many empty or unusual spaces on Ocracoke after Dorian,” Ehringhaus said. “No people are shown. I was and am deeply affected by the empty spaces and all the memories they hold.”
Ehringhaus will participate in an artist webinar about their work at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 17. To participate and learn more about the exhibition, visit online https://clickphotofest.org.
FENCE was conceived and produced by Photoville in partnership with Photo District News and the first edition was exhibited in Brooklyn Bridge Park in 2012.
The project has grown since then through strategic partnerships with civic and cultural organizations across North America.
Other cities exhibiting this fall are Atlanta, Denver, Houston and Seattle.
