‘Through the Eyes of the City’
Exhibit Feb. 1-April 26 • Artist reception 6-8 p.m. Feb. 15
The Salisbury Business Center is hosting a new art exhibition featuring photography and digital art by local artist Duane DuVall. The exhibit, “Through the Eyes of the City,” will be available for public viewing Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
The opening reception for “Through the Eyes of the City’ is Friday, Feb. 15 from 6-8 p.m. at 301 S. Main St. and is free and open to the public. Live acoustic music will be provided by the group Mama Tried.
With lens in hand, photographer Duane DuVall purposefully sets his story in the city, composing a vivid portrait that, rather than a morose depiction of inner city living, seeks optimism in buoyant compositions.
With the new exhibit at the Salisbury Business Center, DuVall pays homage to the city with a less-is-more approach, and takes the viewer to a place that inspires strong reactions, allowing people to project their own city experiences into his view.
Each work of art featured in the ‘Through the Eyes of the City’ exhibit is available for purchase, and the artist is the recipient of 100 percent of the sale proceeds.
Artists interested in exhibiting in future Salisbury Business Center exhibitions should send photos and contact information to email@example.com. With questions, call 704-209-4589 or visit 301 S. Main St., www.salisburybusinesscenter.com
