    Mint Hill Arts is pleased to announce its latest exhibit at the Mint Hill Town Hall Gallery, "New Faces in Photography," featuring the work of eight new members of Mint Hill Arts who express their creative talents through photography. Those featured are Jay Alexander, Carol Hambridge, Sharon Houck, Patricia Joyner, Steve Lindenman, Dale Mayberry, Howie Silinski, and Jacob Thomas. Although all eight work to capture the essence of the subjects they examine photographically, their approaches are far from homogeneous. Several of the artists, including Alexander, Mayberry and Silinski, are drawn to nature and landscapes and lean toward finding the right lighting and composition to capture nature at its best. Mayberry and Silinski were both inspired by the work of Hugh Morton, photographer and nature conservationist who founded Grandfather Mountain; Silenski has photos on exhibit at Grandfather Mountain's Nature Museum.

    About photographing nature, Alexander comments, “I have always found that having a camera in my hand allows me to see things around me that I would otherwise miss, and to see the world from a different perspective,” and this is echoed by Silenski, who says photography “allows me to become more intimate with life’s delicate beauty.”   Thomas, on the other hand, experiments with photography to create something the world has never seen before. To do this, he uses image enhancement and a lot of different lighting effects such as prisms and fairy lights. Hambridge, who, designed the Matthews Alive Posters for 2013, 2016, and 2017, manipulates light on floral arrangements to capture unimagined images of light, life and color that “narrow the gap between what is real and what is imagined.” Lindenman is a freelance event and commercial photographer.  In addition to corporate work, he shoots for a variety of publications, which includes professional and college sports. His work has also been published internationally, as he has traveled to Europe and Asia to shoot on assignment.   Houck is a professional equine photographer. Thus the subject matter featured in the show ranges from landscapes to floral arrangements to horses to sports images.

    The show will open July 11. It will hang until the second week in October and may be viewed weekdays between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM.  The Town Hall Gallery is located in the rear of the building, on both the first and second levels.
