Preston Gannaway 

When: Fri., May 13 2016


The ocean is hard to see in Ocean View, the Norfolk, Virginia, area along the Chesapeake Bay that Pulitzer-winning photographer Preston Gannaway, born in North Carolina and now based in California, documents in her book Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. As in many coastal towns, the humble cottages of the working class vie with million-dollar homes over scanty acres of crucial ecosystem. Gannaway shies from picturesque views to hunt down scenes of desolation, hardship, and unexpected connection, from a glum, misty redevelopment site to chairs dangling precariously from a storm-buckled porch. Meet her at this opening reception, which features a book signing and an artist's talk. The show also has a Third Friday reception and runs through June 3. —Brian Howe

SPECTRE ARTS, DURHAM 6–9 p.m., free,
