Local Color, an exhibition of more than forty works drawn from the Morris Museum’s permanent collection, explores the special role that color photography has played in the history of Southern photography since it was first popularized by William Christenberry and William Eggleston. In addition to those pioneers, the exhibition features work by John Baeder, William Greiner, Birney Imes, Jim McGuire, and Meryl Truett, to cite just a few. The work of these artists focuses on the beauty to be found in the ordinary and the everyday. All of them have devoted their careers to a continuing exploration of the out-of-the-way South, documenting the unique characteristics of their native or adopted region, its people, its landscapes, and its aging architecture. Local Color places their work in a larger narrative of photography in the South.
