TROY — Photographs by regional artist Jerry McGlothen will be on display in the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center’s art studio from May 10 to July 8.
There will be an opening reception from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, May 22, at 301 W. Main St., Troy. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
Jerry McGlothen has participated in the Hayner Center’s “Through Our Eyes” photography competition and exhibition where he won various awards with his regional photographs. However, Italy is the subject matter for this exhibition.
“Come with me to Italy,” said artist Jerry McGlothen. “If you could enjoy the fragrances that surrounded me as I captured many of my pictures, you would enjoy a wonderful symphony, and perhaps a cacophony, of olfactory delight.”
Jerry’s goal is to take the viewer away from wherever they are. Whether they’ve been to any of the sites he’s photographed, or have dreamed about visiting them; he hopes to give them the pleasure of viewing the image, and putting them in Italy in the moment. Perhaps viewers would be able to smell the pecorino romano cheese in Pienza, the wines being bottled or being tasted in Montalcino, or the ambrosial tones of the wisteria vines growing all over Italy.
