The show is titled: The Focus.. on The Road Less Traveled.  - The road less traveled is both a literal and metaphorical byway traversed over land or via the power of thought.  Far removed from interstates and mainstream social norms, it may lead us to images of non-conformity and independent thinking; uncommon perspectives; the natural beauty and remoteness of hinterlands; or the crumbling remains of days gone by."

Don't miss the opportunity to get out and see some terrific work by two terrific artists!

Be sure to check out the Click! website for more information on everything going on for the remainder of this years festival!

For this exhibit, each artist will select a photographer whose work they admire, and from that inspiration will create work of their own. Hence: "In the footsteps of..."

The Image Salon is a group of 8 diverse local photographers in the Triangle (Raleigh, NC) area. They came together to advance their own photography as well as each of the other members, by sharing their knowledge and meeting on a regular basis to critique the current work of each of the individual artists.
Although each member has their own unique perspective, their ability to share their experience in every aspect of photography, from concept to exhibition in a spirit of collaboration, has led to deep personal and professional connections and fostered a friendly environment in which to grow their own photographic vision.

To learn more about The Image Salon, visit their website here.

This is a terrific concept assembled by an exceptional group of artists. This will be one show you won't want to miss!
