Installation by Brian Lackey

May 6 - September 17, 2017
Shuford, Gifford & Regal Galleries

An installation by Hickory, North Carolina native Brian Lackey of photographic prints, film projections, soundscapes and sculptural elements. The immersive
environment highlights the photographs alongside the artist's personal ephemera. The experience will evolve over time as visitors will be encouraged to be part of the exhibition; they are invited to let go of their past, by adding to the narrative through writing and releasing a memorial / elegy to their former selves.

The exhibition includes a rare body of work using Polaroid type 55 film taken over the course of 20 years involving one man, one camera, and all natural light; no spotting, toning, or Photoshop manipulation was utilized.

HMA Board of Trustees Past President and current co-Vice President Kit Cannon is serving as Guest Curator

Hickory, North Carolina graphic designer Matt Everley challenged himself to create 52 brewery/beer logos in one year, each using a different typeface. The font itself became the driving factor for each logo design. This is the first time the entire collection of 52 logos will be on exhibition.

Everley designed the Lake Norman Folk Art Festival’s unmistakable “swimming chicken” logo and created the soon-to-be-as-famous pig logo for the Foothills Folk Art Festival.
