Gallery C in Raleigh, NC, Offers Works by Bayard Wootten

Gallery C in Raleigh, NC, presents a collection of 18 newly discovered silver gelatin prints by pioneer female photographer Bayard Wootten (1875 – 1959), on view from Sept. 6 through Oct. 1, 2013. A reception will be held on Sept. 6, from 6-9pm.

Wootten was born in New Bern, NC, and is well known for her depictions and honest portrayals of daily life of both white and black citizens of the more rural areas from the mountains to the coast of North Carolina. These vintage photographs were taken in the 1930’s when she was at the height of her powers. Her work is in the collection of the NC Collection Photographic Archives located at the NC Library at Chapel Hill. She was also featured in a book by Jerry Cotton, Light and Air, which is a biography and photgraphic collection of one of North Carolina’s greatest photographers.

Gallery C is located in downtown Raleigh on the corner of Blount Street and Peace Street in Blount Street Commons and there is plenty of free parking.

For further information check our NC Commercial Gallery listings, call the gallery at 919/828-3165 or visit (www.galleryc.net).
