10/1/2010 - Jimmy McDonald, a Richmond County photographer, is in the process of shooting digital photographs for an exhibit on adorning the human body. The work will be displayed at Arts Richmond in Rockingham during their “Art of Adornment” exhibit that will open Wednesday October 6th and run until Nov. 30.
According to Laura Daskal, executive director of Arts Richmond, the exhibit presents questions about contemporary societies and how they adorn the human form with art. The exhibit asks the viewer to think about art and the body, and ask, “Is it adornment? Is it art? What statements are presented? What are the stories told?
This exhibit will feature the work of several artists including McDonald. He said he aims to capture what people do as far as decorating their bodies, and that the first things to come to mind were tattoos and piercings. While that is not all he seeks to photograph, he looks for unusual adornment as well — such as abnormally long fingernails, or unusual hair styles and colors.
The exhibit will open from 2 until 6:30 p.m., and will be open to the public Tuesdays – Fridays. A reception for the artists will be held on Oct. 24 at 4 p.m.
