Virtual Opening: Saturday, Dec 12, 3-6pm:
Claire Elizabeth Gallery is pleased to present “Journeys” – an exhibition of photography by Ashleigh Coleman, December 1, 2020 – January 10, 2021. “Journeys” looks at a journey in time, place and season through images of landscape, architecture and the life of a young girl. Coleman is a Mississippi based photographer whose work has been featured in Southern Living, Garden & Gun and Oxford American among others. A self-taught photographer, Coleman uses a Hasselblad 500c/m to capture the places and people that surround her— documenting her own life, as well as that of her three small children while they navigate growing up together in rural America. Coleman’s work has been exhibited at the University of Mississippi’s Center for the Study of Southern Culture, Griffin Museum of Photography (MA), Soho Photo Gallery (NY), the University of West Virginia, the University of Southern Mississippi, and the SE Center for Photography (SC). In 2020, Coleman was a South Arts State Fellowship Recipient (Bo Bartlett Center at Columbus State University; Columbus, Georgia) and participated in A Yellow Rose Project, a photographic collaboration celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment which granted women in the United States the right to vote. “Journeys” is Coleman’s second exhibition at the Claire Elizabeth Gallery and as part of PhotoNOLA Festival.
