I will be showing two of my solar pinhole prints at the 8th Photographic Image Biennial Exhibition at the Wellington B. Gray Gallery in the East Carolina University School of Art and Design in Greenville, North Carolina. I learned that I also won an award for “Roxy Farms”. This exhibition is open to the public and you are invited.

Abut the Juror

Sam Wang is an internationally recognized photographer and educator. Born in Beijing, China in 1939, he came to the United States to attend Augustana College in Sioux Falls, S.D., where he earned his BA in art and later attended the University of Iowa earning an MFA in 1966. From 1966 to 2006 Sam taught at Clemson University, retiring in 2006. While there he was named Alumni Distinguished Professor and helped establish the program in Digital Production Arts to prepare students for careers in digital animation. His work as an artist covers most formats and processes in photography, both black and white and alternative processes, and he was an early experimenter with digital imaging in the 1980s. Most recently Sam was keynote speaker and workshop instructor at the 2011 Alternative Process Symposium in Toronto, Canada and he gave lectures on his work at the X’ian College of Fine Arts and the Nanjing Arts University in China in the summer of 2012. In 2010, the monograph Sam Wang: Four Decades of Photographic Exploration was released, documenting his career of art photography and innovation. In 2012 Sam received the Elizabeth O’Neil Verner Award for Individual given by the Governor and the South Carolina Arts Commission for service in the arts.
