Douglas Butler and Julian Charles—widely exhibited, award-winning photographers living in northwestern North Carolina—join at the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center for their first collaborative exhibition debuting on Sept. 13 at 5:30 p.m. in the Welborn Gallery.
This gallery opening will be the first of its kind, incorporating the Willingham Theater for a short presentation from each photographer on their work as well as a live musical performance from Bandit’s Roost, Charles’ musical endeavor. The theater presentation will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a gallery reception with refreshments and a meet and greet with the photographers following at 6:30 p.m. The public is encouraged to attend.
Butler and Charles have much in common. Both are accomplished mountain climbers, international adventure travelers and both share a passion for the environment. While both men seek similar goals through photography, each has selected a complementary aspect of their work for this show.
Viewing hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Closed Sunday.
The Yadkin Cultural Arts Center is located at 226 E. Main Street in Yadkinville.
The 193-seat state-of-the-art theater offers live music, drama, dance performances, community theater and children’s theater. The theater meets ADA requirements. It is equipped with assisted listening devices for the hearing impaired and special seating for people in wheelchairs.
