Eyes Wide Open: Photographs by Elizabeth Galecke
10 March – 30 April 2017
Elizabeth Galecke has been a professional portrait photographer in the Triangle and surrounding area for over 20 years. She specializes in fine art portraits capturing her subjects in their everyday environments. Eyes Wide Open is a series of photographs taken by Elizabeth on daily meditative walks meant to open her eyes, and ours, to the world in which we live. She has taken hundreds of photos since beginning the project in 2015, a sampling of which is on display in the Tiny Gallery at the Ackland Museum Store. Elizabeth invites us all to participate in this journey by using the hashtag #EyesWideOpen.
