More about all of them HERE.
Also in Charlotte, DOMA Photography Gallery at 1310 South Tryon Street, is hosting a juried exhibit of work by five North Carolina photographers, entitled the "Eyes of Carolina Exhibition," up now through September 3, 2011.
This show features work by Asheville's Eric Baden, Chapel Hill's Frank Konhaus, Wilmington's Mike Smith, and Charlotte's Jeff Murphy and Rachel Nemecek.

Since Rachel is having a summer to remember, her image gets featured on this blog entry (see above).
Larry Wheeler, the Director of North Carolina Museum of Art, was the juror. You can read his remarks about his selections HERE.

One is entitled Landscape Sublime: Contemporary Photography (up now through November 13th), which includes the work of a who's who of distinguished North Carolina photographers -- John Menapace, Elizabeth Matheson, David Simonton, Titus Heagins, Caroline Vaughan, and Alex Harris.
The other show is entitled Mirror Image: Women Portraying Women, up now through November 27th.
This is a multi-media show that includes paintings and other media, but also includes photographs by North Carolina photographers Margaret Sartor, Linda Foard Roberts, elin o’Hara slavick, Caroline Vaughan, Mary Shannon Johnstone, and Susan Harbage Page.
Both these shows are in the NCMA's East Building, and both are well worth a long, meditative visit.
