Thirty-four photographs by Lorraine Roe of Ferrum and Debra Alcorn of Eden, N.C., are featured in an exhibition entitled “Women’s Work: Through the Lens of Female Photographers” at the Reynolds Homestead.
On display through February 26, these works represent the development and experimentation of photographic art by both artists. The exhibition opens on Wednesday, January 13, and both photographers will be honored with a reception on Friday, January 22 from 3 to 6 p.m.
“Stop by the Reynolds Homestead and view the art and enjoy refreshments while you browse the exhibition,” said program manager Lisa Martin. “Both women have won awards for their photography at the JEB Stuart Art Show, and we are honored to feature a full exhibition of their talents.”
Alcorn is a native of Eden and not only works in photography but also monotype, acrylics, oils and pastels. Her favorite medium is fine arts photography. She has won 51 awards for her art in a 12-year span and has exhibited in several one-person shows.
Roe arrived in Virginia in 2011 and immediately fell in love with its natural beauty. The daughter of acclaimed photographers, Lorraine enjoys sharing her love of Virginia through photography with her friends, neighbors and others. She has been exhibiting her work for the past two years where it has garnered compliments, ribbons and cash awards.
There is never a charge to view the gallery at the Reynolds Homestead, and the reception on January 22 is free.
