Dates: August 10–September 23, 2017

Rickey Stilley became a photographer when he picked up his first camera at age fifteen. After graduating from the Randolph Technical Institute (now Community College) in Asheboro, North Carolina, Stilley received his first position as photographer at the Henderson Daily Dispatch. He has since spent a career defining and redefining his craft as a photojournalist. This comprehensive retrospective features examples from his college work to the present. From austere black and white to rich, digital images, Stilley’s subjects and stories enlighten and fascinate. Stilley currently works as photographer for West Georgia Living magazine and as IT Manager and part-time photographer for the Times-Georgian. His artwork has won seven North Carolina Press Association awards and 16 Georgia Press Association awards.
