Drunken Poet's Dream 

When: April 5-26 2015


HORACE WILLIAMS HOUSE—Photographer Lori Vrba, whose monograph The Moth Wing Diaries was published by Daylight Books last month, shows a new body of lyrical work at the Horace Williams House in Chapel Hill. The surreal, sepia-tinged imagery of Drunken Poet's Dream was inspired by the Ray Wylie Hubbard song of the same name. Vrba, who shoots film and then processes and prints her work by hand, found tragedy and beauty in Hubbard's title, commingling them in images of children, wings, snakes, books and a fantastic landscape out of the 19th century. The exhibition runs through April 26. 2–4 p.m., free, 610 E. Rosemary St., Chapel Hill, 919-942-7818, www.lorivrba.com.
