Visit our Exhibitions page for more information.
Born in 1979 and raised in central Mississippi by a family who encouraged art-making, Easton Selby received his BFA from Delta State University in Cleveland, MS, where he first discovered fine art photography. At the recommendation of his uncle, a commercial photographer, Selby took his first photography class, during which he developed his affinity for the medium. Selby went on to complete a MFA in visual arts from Clemson University (SC), where he studied under photographer Sam Wang.
His current work centers around themes of religion, Southern folklore and myth. He resides in Conway, SC, where he is the head of the visual arts department at Coastal Carolina University. Selby’s exhibition RootWork explores the essence of the photographic medium through his experiences with religion in the South.
Join us for the opening reception on Thursday, October 11, 2018 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. Gallery Talk at 6 pm. Free admission.
