Nancy Richards Farese Exhibition Coming to Center for the Arts

An exhibition of award-winning photographer, writer and entrepreneur Nancy Richards Farese’s work opens at the Carrollton Center for the Arts on August 31 and runs through October 16.

Farese’s Potential Space: A Serious Look at Child’s Play photography exhibition explores the human relationship with play and presents a visual index of play from around the world.

“Play is valuable in any society,” said Center for the Arts Manager Tim Chapman. “Our visiting artist and author has characterized her findings through her works of art and words on paper. I look forward to seeing how she has captured this creative topic, both through her lens and with ink.”

The arts center will host an opening reception for Farese’s show, August 31 from 5pm to 7pm. The exhibition is sponsored by Dr. Tee and Dana Reeve.

The center will also host a Visiting Author Series luncheon with Farese, September 1, 12pm – 2pm. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased online at carrolltonarts.com, by phone at 770-838-1083 or at the center’s box office at 251 Alabama Street. Carrollton Writers Guild Members receive a five dollar discount. 

During the exhibition’s run, adults are encouraged to stop by the center’s Roush Gallery and write on a provided card ways they find and create play. Visitors can add the cards to a community board for others to see and perhaps inspire new play ideas.

Farese is a Carrollton native who currently lives in California. She collaborates with international development organizations including the UN High Commission on Refugees, CARE USA and the Carter Center. Farese is the author of Potential Space: A Serious Look at Child’s Play and the founder of CatchLight, a visual-first media organization. She is a graduate of the Harvard Kennedy School and was a fellow at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy.
