Liberty Arts presents our final exhibition of 2011, “Stretching the Truth: Interpreting the World Through Photography”

Join Liberty Arts on Opening Night as we celebrate our final exhibition of the year.

“Stretching the Truth: Interpreting the World Through Photography” will confuse fact and fiction as regional artists show us how they use the camera lens to capture – and alter – a moment in time.

Artist discussion at 6pm

Dinner and Live Music next door at
The Audacity & Café

Liberty Arts Gallery
108 W. Miner Street

Curated by Photographer, Don Hall.

CURATOR STATEMENT: Photography is the recording of a moment in time.  Sometimes a photo tells a great deal about that moment and other times it can capture an image that is counter to the actual essence of the event being photographed.  Photography can exaggerate the moment.  It can diminish it.  It can turn the moment on its head, shred it, then reconstitute it.  It can place it in a context that subtly or totally changes the moments meaning.  With digital photography, even the core elements of the image can be manipulated to show the recorded moment in a totally different light.
