Wilmington, NC - Cape Fear Museum’s newest exhibit Impressions of the Lower Cape Fear opens April 10, 2013. Enjoy images from members of the Cape Fear Camera Club that convey a wide range of contemporary impressions of the Cape Fear, and illuminate the ways photographers connect to a place and moment in time. This photographic journey features more than 100 printed and digital works of the rich and diverse habitats of the Cape Fear region. The photos show the extraordinary range of plants and animals that can be found in local forests, swamps, on the river, and at the beach. Impressions of the Lower Cape Fear depicts Southeastern North Carolina’s history and how the region’s environment has been influenced by the people who have made this place “home.” See how the Lower Cape Fear has changed over the centuries as people have added layers of built structures atop the bare landscape. Impressions of the Lower Cape Fear will be on view until October 27, 2013.
"The Camera Club's exhibit proposal to create the feel of a photographic journey through the region was a great fit for Cape Fear Museum in many ways," said Museum Exhibit Manager Adrienne Garwood. "We strive to educate our visitors on the history, science, and cultures of the Lower Cape Fear; exhibiting photographs the various local landscapes helps us do just that."
Cape Fear Camera Club members are both amateur and professional photographers who promote and advance the understanding and joy of photography by providing opportunities for education, skill development, picture taking, competition, critique and fellowship.
