 In celebration of American Archives Month, the Kingsport Public Library & Archives, the Friends of the Archives and the Mary B. Martin School of the Arts will present “Kingsport Revisited”, an exhibition of new photographs from ETSU students based on historic images of Kingsport. The exhibition is the culmination of a summer course taught by ETSU’s Visiting Assistant Professor of Photography Joshua Dudley Greer. Over the 5 week summer course, the students researched photography collections housed in the Kingsport Archives with the goal to meticulously re-photograph dozens of locations around Kingsport, just as they appeared in the original images. The month-long exhibit at the Kingsport Renaissance Center pairs the new photographs with their original counterparts, illustrating significant changes in landscape, architecture and culture in Kingsport.

 The following artist’s work will be included in the exhibition:

– Veronica Addington

– Samantha Adkins

– Alan Beuris

– Angela Freese

– Trish Gibson

– Hannah Hamilton

– John Hathaway

– Megan King

– Amanda Milstead

– Ashley Nease

– Joshua Powers

– Wrightly Reed

– Lauren Roberts

– Andrew Scott

– Cassie Williams

           An opening reception will be held Thursday, October 6 at 5:30 in conjunction with the Friends of the Archives annual meeting.  The exhibit is open to the public Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., October 1 – November 10, 2011 in the 2nd Floor Atrium at the Kingsport Renaissance Center.
