Photos of local residents in exhibitPublished 11:44am Friday, June 8, 2012
Visitors from the Thermal Belt might recognize someone they know in the photos featured in The Living Mask exhibit at the Flood Gallery in Asheville, N.C. The Living Mask is an exhibit of digital pinhole portraits of WNC characters hiding (or revealing) their innermost personas behind exotic masks from around the world.
In this exhibit, Rimas Zailskas, the co-publisher of Bold Life, Verve and Carolina Home and Garden, presents a body of work outside the editorial arena. The portraits in The Living Mask are surreal, often defying common sense, but always seeking the essence of the subject.
The Flood Gallery is located at the Phil Mechanic Studios at 109 Roberts Street in the River Arts District of Asheville. The exhibit will continue through June 30.
