Susan Worsham Bittersweet on Bostwick Lane
Artist's Talk and Reception
Wednesday, September 20, 5:30pm
Wilson Hall's Concert Hall
In this series, Susan Worsham photographs the street where she grew up and her elderly neighbor Margaret, one of the last connections to her youth. Weaving the innocence of childhood with the gravity that attends the passage of time, Worsham's work reflects on love, loss, death, and discovery. In 2012, Worsham received the Theresa Pollak Prize for Photography and was named one of Oxford American's "New Superstars of Southern Art". She has been artist-in-residence at Light Work in Syracuse, New York and nominee of the Santa Fe Prize for Photography. Her work has been widely exhibited in the United States as well as internationally, and is held in private and public collections including The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and The Do Good Fund Southern Photography Initiative. She was recently nominated for the 2016 Baum Award for an Emerging American Photographer, one of the largest national awards among the grants and fellowships available in photography.
