DCCC Fall Art Exhibit and Business After Hours
From the website of Davidson County Community College
August 24, 2007
The opening of Davidson County Community College’s fall art exhibit Moments in Time and a Thomasville and Lexington Chambers of Commerce Business After Hours event brought around 80 people to the Davidson Campus Tuesday to view the works of eight artists including DCCC staff member Laura Yarbrough.
Yarbrough, Associate Dean, Financial and Administrative Services, is an accomplished photographer who strives to move the viewer to feel the story that echoes in each of her photographs.
“When I take pictures, I am trying to find the right frame to emphasize the beauty of that moment,” Yarbrough says. “Each picture has a feeling, whether it is trying to capture how the sunrise reflects off the ocean or how a little boy sleeps on the streets of Mexico while his mother sells jewelry to feed her family.”
Yarbrough was present at the opening in the Mendenhall Building to discuss her work with those attending the event. Other attending artists were Barbara Cullen of Winston-Salem, watercolor, mixed media and collage; Steve LeGrand of Jamestown, sculpture; Callie Mott Matthews of N. Little Rock, AR, oil, print, pen and pencil; and Leslie Pearson of Fayetteville, oil, acrylic and mixed media. In addition, the exhibit features the artwork of Carl Gombert of Maryville, TN, oil, ink, mixed media and collage; Ed Harris of Elizabethtown, watercolor; and Carolyn Landers of Naples, FL, oil.
The Moments in Time art exhibit will remain open through December 14 and may be viewed during the college’s regular operating hours.
