Sawyer re-enactment photographs to show in North Wing Gallery Feb. 1-Mar. 31
Release Date: 1/6/2006. Expired: 3/31/2006
Dickson County resident Kay Sawyer will display her photographs of Civil War re-enactments in the North Wing Gallery of The Renaissance Center in Dickson Feb. 1-March 31.
An opening reception for Sawyer’s exhibit will be 6-7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 3.
A 1970 graduate of Dickson High School, Sawyer worked with The Dickson Herald and The Shelbyville Times-Gazette, which led to a career as a graphic artist.
Her study of color management and manipulation at Nashville State Technical School in the late 1990s enhanced her first love of nature’s beauty in oil paintings and pastels.
Sawyer now prefers 35mm photography utilizing natural lighting and film speeds of 160-200.
One of her favorite subjects, Billie Sawyer, introduced Kay to Civil War re-enactments in 1997. Re-enactors camp and spend quality time together with their families, teaching sons and daughters the ways of yesteryear for a better way tomorrow.
Sawyer loves capturing the history and periods of hand-made, hard work, hard times and the family of friends that grows at each event.
Her photographs will be displayed in the North Wing Gallery Feb. 1-March 31. The Renaissance Center’s galleries are open 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Saturday and admission is free.
