Lee and Clela Reed offer a first-time collaboration in their exhibit “Resonations: A Marriage of Photography and Poetry,” appearing in the Claire and Robert Clements Gallery. Photos and poems that resonate with one another are paired for this unusual exhibit.
Lee has been a serious photographer since the 1980s, specializing in landscape photography and the creation of digital abstracts. His intention in composition is to show not only what an image is but — in the words of photographer Minor White– “what else it is.” He has had several exhibits of his work shown, as well as publication of several journal covers.
Clela is the author of seven collections of poetry. The most recent, Silk (Evening Street Press, 2019), won the Helen Kay Chapbook Prize and then the 2020 Georgia Author of the Year in chapbook competition. A Pushcart Prize nominee, she has had poems published in many journals and reviews. Like Lee, she, too, strives to communicate something beyond the surface—“what else it is.”
Their hope is that viewers will experience a greater appreciation of their works when seeing them in pairs. The exhibit dates are April 2 through June 25, with an opening reception on April 2 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
