| Exhibit Showcases Coal Country Photographs
The work of photographic artist Daniel Shea is on display through February 25, 2011, at Berea College. Shea’s photographs are a multifaceted exploration of coal mining communities and the people and places where coal is mined and burned to produce electricity.
Two distinct exhibits of Shea’s work are featured on Berea’s campus. Shea’s first exhibit “Removing Mountains” is showing at Berea College Hutchins Library through January 28. His second exhibit “Plume” is showing at Loyal Jones Appalachian Center through February 25.
On Friday, January 21 from noon to 1 p.m., Shea will discuss his creative work. The event is free and open to the public and will be held in the Appalachian center.
Shea, an artist and educator based in Chicago, splits his time between working on the road or in the studio, teaching art outreach programs and photographing for publications such as Time, Dwell, Monocle, W Magazine, and The Wall Street Journal.
Samples of Shea’s work can be viewed at http://www.berea.edu/publicrelations/tempprojects/2011/DanielSheaPhotos/removingmountains.html.
