The photography of G. Moore Carpenter, Phillips County native, is the newest exhibit at the DCC Visitors Center. The exhibit consists of 42 digital prints, both color and black and white, and focuses primarily on the beauty of the Delta landscapes.
Carpenter owns and operates a business in Elaine, in south Phillips County. He admits to being “intrigued by the Delta,” and uses his creativity to capture scenes of places and people of the region. A graduate of Hendrix College in Conway, Carpenter says, “I've lived enough in large cities to know a much better life awaits in the country.”
The exhibit is slated to run through August. An opening reception is planned for Tuesday, June 18, from 5:30 – 7 p.m. at the DCC Visitors Center.
The following special programming will coincide with Carpenter's exhibit:
• June 27 - John Hutto, interpreter for the Delta Heritage Trail State Park, will speak on “Cypress Trees in the Arkansas Delta”; 5:30 p.m. at the DCC Visitors Center;
