Harding University Features Black History Month Photography Show

The Stevens Art Gallery at Harding University is hosting a Black History Month photography show titled “Expressions: A Moment in Time.” The show is currently on display on the third floor of the Olen Hendrix Building and will run through Friday, March 1. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and admission is free.

The photography exhibit primarily contains the work of Virginia Bradley along with contributions from Harding sophomore Roosevelt Presley. Subjects are posed to portray historically significant black actors, politicians, entrepreneurs, writers, artists and humanitarians.

“The department of art and design is always honored to showcase the work of Virginia Bradley, an alumna of the department,” said Daniel Adams, art professor and department chair. “Mrs. Bradley chooses a different theme each year to explore with friends, family and coworkers through the medium of photography. It is exciting to see how she approaches the thoughts and ideas that are attached to the simple, straightforward portraiture that typically signifies her method of working.”
