RIVERWORKS Gallery in Greenville, SC, Features Works by Jim Horner

RIVERWORKS Gallery in Greenville, SC, will present the exhibit, Relics, featuring works by Jim Horner, on view from May 7 through June 19, 2011. A reception will be held on May 6, from 6-9pm.

Relics is a photographic installation of images of relics created and collected by Horner. The images are printed with a photographic process, cyanotype, which is itself a relic. As the abandoned and useless buildings and vehicles captured by the cyanotypes are deteriorating, their deep blue images are also fading away. Though the images’ mysterious blue will disappear, their individual stories will continue in the memories of those who experienced them and then passed that experience on. The cyanotypes blue gives the images an other worldly quality like looking through Alice’s glass or into a mythological pool.

Horner teaches photography at Greenville Technical College. He specializes in alternative photographic processes.

RIVERWORKS Gallery is operated by and for the faculty and students from the Department of Visual and Performing Arts at Greenville Technical College. The gallery is located at 300 River Street, Suite 202, along the scenic Reedy River at Art Crossing in downtown Greenville.
