‘Double Vision’ art show opens tonight at Depot

By Kay S. Pedrotti Two hometown photography artists, Charlotte Weber and Bill Chamberlain, open their exhibit, ‘˜Double Vision,’ with the traditional reception Aug. 7 at the Lamar Arts Depot Gallery. Weber, a Barnesville resident and daughter of clay artist Pat Hankins, has had photos in the members’ room at LA several times but this is a first time for her to have the entire Trackside Gallery, she said. The larger front gallery will show work by Bill Chamberlain of Zebulon, long-time photographer who has had many shows in Atlanta and several solo shows at Pike County’s annual Slow Exposures juried show, directed by his wife Chris Curry. He has a large body of work, painstakingly collected since 1970, that is done strictly with film, he said. Weber has a master’s degree in historic preservation and started her interest in varied photography by taking pictures of historic sites and buildings. She has placed third in the Slow Exposures show, ‘which really got me inspired,’ she added. Chamberlain’s photos are done the oldfashioned way, he said: ‘I wait for the light. It could take a year to get just the light I want, and another year to decide whether anybody besides me should see it.’ He has shown at the Atlanta Photography Group gallery, the Artists’ Center and other city locations. Weber uses primarily digital and looks for the right moment, right angle and perfect light to capture an image. Her intention is to relate the full experience of the subject in her photos. The reception, complete with refreshments, is from 6-8 p.m. on Friday Aug. 7, at the depot gallery on Main Street in Barnesville. The photographs will be on display until Oct. 10, said Angela Preston, gallery director.
