Lost on the Road to Oblivion, The Vanishing Beauty of Coal Country

Galie.8billion gallons_0Joseph Bathanti will ready original poetry written in collaboration with, and in response to, artist Carl Galie’s exhibition Lost on the Road to Oblivion, The Vanishing Beauty of Coal Country, on display at Turchin Center for the Visual Arts in Boone, Friday, Nov. 1 at 6:30 p.m. Bathanti also will discuss the inspiration behind the written word and the process of collaborating with a visual artist. Award-winning Winston-Salem photographer Carl Galie immersed himself in the project in order to reclaim his sense of home and search for the truth embodied in that yearning. His work takes the viewer on a journey through the Southern Appalachians while documenting the practice of mountaintop removal, as well as its collateral fallout, in a series of images depicting an endangered natural environment.  For  more information, visit http://tcva.org/.
