Opal Gallery's extending its exhibit of Oraien Catledge's photos through Jan. 23.

From CL's Chad Radford in his Nov. 23 article on the show:

The images present accidental landscapes disguised as portraits, as scene after scene of children and adults personifies the dilapidated surroundings. These stark black-and-white and rich sepia-toned photos are imbued with a quality that transcends time, capturing an era that feels much further away than the late ’70s and early ’80s. Much like Dorothea Lange’s Dust Bowl photos or Walker Evans’ Great Depression imagery, Catledge’s photographs embody the suffering and celebrations of a poor, undereducated white haven on the brink of disappearance.

Read the entire story, and watch/listen to the accompanying audio slideshow, which includes images you won't find in the show.

Gallery hours are Thurs.-Sat., noon-7 p.m. Easy going if you venture out today!
