ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LENS: THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF LEONARD NIMOY

THURSDAY, APRIL 30, GRAHAM

CAPTAIN JAMES AND EMMA HOLT WHITE HOUSE—Acting was just Leonard Nimoy's job; he found his true passion on the other side of the camera, as a director and amateur photographer, and parlayed his screen fame into new and successful careers. Nimoy, who died in February, experimented with photography throughout his adult life. Fascinated by the human form, particularly nudes, Nimoy's use of chiaroscuro harkened back to paintings of the Renaissance, and he often referenced modern masters such as Matisse. But like Mr. Spock, his seminal Star Trek role, Nimoy was far more interested in the inner lives of his subjects, exploring spirituality, empowerment and the emotions lurking just beneath the skin. After this opening reception, the exhibit runs through July 15. 6:30–8:30 p.m., free, 213 S. Main St., Graham, 336-226-4495, www.alamancearts.org.
