Beyond the Deadlines

The Durham Arts Council (DAC) and the Independent Weekly present Beyond the Deadlines: Independent Weekly photography by D.L. Anderson and Jeremy M. Lange, March 18-May 15, 2011 in the Allenton and Semans Galleries of the Durham Arts Council.

Anderson and Lange, staff photographers for the Independent Weekly, present photographs that go beyond the assignment to offer a deeper view of the region. Anderson has worked for many clients including MERGE Records and The Wall Street Journal and specializes in editorial and portrait photography as well as video and multimedia productions. Publications such as The New York Times and Rolling Stone have featured Lange’s work, which includes portrait and editorial photography.

The artists’ reception on March 18th from 5-7 PM is part of downtown Durham’s Third Friday gallery tour and will feature food, music and an opportunity for the public to view the exhibit and meet the artists. The exhibit and the reception are co-sponsored by the DAC and the Independent Weekly and are part of the DAC’s year-round exhibits program. An artists’ talk will take place in the gallery at 6:30 PM and Heplicity, a jazz duo composed of James Wallace and Jeff Crawford, will be performing live from 5:30-7 PM.

Anderson and Lange are producing a limited edition, signed catalogue for sale with an introductory essay by Tom Rankin, director of the Center for Documentary Studies. Rankin praises the artists’ work stating that, “they look and work to find an angle, a human dimension that engages, reveals and brings us meaning through their imagery, showing us the day-to-day where mere words would be insufficient.” Sherry Devries, Director of the DAC, agrees saying, “These two photographers are incredibly talented and this exhibit as a whole is exciting for the DAC because it features images of people and events in our own regional community and highlights photojournalism as a medium.”

The artist’s reception is free and open to the public and will be held at the DAC’s historic downtown building at 120 Morris Street, Durham, NC, 27701.
