‘Mind Shadows’: a photographic exhibit at Lycoming College Art Gallery
Just as the body creates a shadow in bright sunshine, so can the mind create a shadow of the self. These shadows of the mind are the topic of exploration for photographer Ralph Wilson’s upcoming exhibit at the Lycoming College Art Gallery. “Mind Shadows” runs through July 22.
Wilson is currently the director of the Factory Works Gallery and the Williamsport Community Darkroom at the Pajama Factory, where he teaches black and white film photography and historic processes.
