Rural Revival: Photographs of Home and Preservation of Place

December 17, 2014  •  1 Comment
Good morning everyone! I thought I would start the day off with an announcement that I've been looking forward to posting for quite awhile. I have been given the official go ahead by Mr. Michael Ausbon, the Decorative Arts Associate Curator of the North Carolina Museum of History, to announce with great honor, an upcoming photography exhibition that will take place in early 2015. The Exhibition, titled: Rural Revival: Photographs of Home and Preservation of Place, will run from February 20, 2015 through September 27, 2015 at the North Carolina Museum of History and will showcase over 50 images of my photography. The following is more detailed information regarding the Exhibition:

Exhibition Title: Rural Revival: Photographs of Home and Preservation of Place

Dates: February 20, 2015 – September 27, 2015

Exhibition Description: This exhibit will feature approximately 55 images by photographer Scott Garlock. These images consist of abandoned, old and interesting homes and buildings of eastern and north eastern North Carolina. The museum will partner with the State Historic Preservation Office, Preservation North Carolina and Edgecombe Community College (the only college in the state to offer a certificate and a 1 and 2 year degree in Historic Preservation Technology.) The exhibit will also have video components. The goals of this exhibition are to bring awareness of the continued need for preservation/restoration of these historic structures that dot the NC landscape, to educate the public on what resources are available and to celebrate the successful restoration projects.

This evocative photograph exhibit will provide a powerful experience that will help place NCMOH decorative-arts objects in a context with local history and family heritage. Although many of these homes are in decay, they will remind the visitor of the sturdy and independent character of North Carolinians. They present our citizens with a shared history that ties us to the places we love. They remind us that history is alive!

Rural Revival: Photographs of Home and Place also celebrates the successful restorations and recognizes the “partners in preservation” who continually strive to ensure the survival of our historical architecture and place.

Exhibition Venue: NC Museum of History, Raleigh, NC, A Division of the NC Department of Cultural Resources

Exhibit Curator: Michael A Ausbon, Decorative Arts Associate Curator
