The Arts Center in Carrboro, NC, Features Works by Roger Kellison

The Arts Center in Carrboro, NC, will present Roger Kellison: Photographs and Collage, on view from Jan. 2 - 31, 2014. A reception will be held on Jan. 10, from 6-8pm, in conjunction with the 2nd Friday ArtWalk.

There is an unusual aspect to Kellison’s adventures in photography. Though he did take some pictures in NYC back in the day...60’s & 70’s...they were mostly the typical family shots. However, a few years ago a diagnosis of Parkinson’s coincided with his receiving gifts of a used digital camera and a printer.

Some doctors say that one of Kellison’s medications can unleash any of a number of compulsive behaviors. Perhaps that accounts for the thousand of pictures that surround him and more that he continues to print. That certainly beats the alternatives of compulsive gambling or more sinister life-altering changes that some poor souls experience.

This will be Kellison’s fourth show in the last year.
