If you are in the Atlanta area this weekend, be sure to stop by the Hands in Harmony Photography Exhibit at the Ferst Center for the Arts at Georgia Tech. This traveling exhibit features photographs by acclaimed Asheville-based photographer Tim Barnwell who has documented folk musicians and traditional crafts people of the Appalachian region for over three decades.

Our very own Jan Davidson wrote the foreword to the accompanying book, Hands in Harmony: Traditional Crafts and Music in Appalachia. In the foreword, Jan explains:

Tim is a gentleman, blessed with a kind heart, and that makes his pictures of people better…The images take you to interesting places, full of textures, shapes and information, where you and a remarkable person meet. The moment caught in an instant, captured in a blink of light that illuminates the long corridors of time.

JCCFS teacher, Carlson Tuttle is featured in Barnwell’s Collection:

Georgia Tech, Atlanta, GA
Monday-Friday, by appointment only. Please call 404-894-2787 from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. to make an appointment. Admission is free but donations are accepted.

Hi Vicki! If you go to Tim’s website, he doesn’t have any other dates up right now. It looks like galleries, museums and cultural centers can request the traveling show to come to them. Maybe there is a location near you that would be a good venue? Thanks for reading our blog!
