About The Exhibition
Arkansas-based artist and educator Aaron Turner uses photography as a transformative process to understand the ideas of home and resilience in two main areas of the U.S., the Arkansas and Mississippi Deltas. This exhibition features photographic still-life studies, taken with a large format view camera, that are reflections on identity, history, blackness as material, and abstraction. Turner received his M.A. from Ohio University and an M.F.A from Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University. Recent recognition of his work includes an Artist 360 Mid-America Arts Alliance Grant, the 2021 Houston Center for Photography Fellowship, a 2021 Creators Lab Photo Fund award from Google's Creator Labs & the Aperture Foundation, and 2022 Darryl Chappell Foundation photographer-in-residence at Ogden Museum of Southern Art.
