Jamestown Arts Center 8th Annual Summer Soirée

The 8th Annual Summer Soirée will feature an exclusive viewing of Betwixt and Between: Photography, Time and Place curated by Annu Palakunnathu Matthew. 

"The use of the English idiom “Betwixt and between” reflects the dichotomy in the work displayed in this exhibition, between our older definitions of photography and the ways it is being redefined. This is especially true with the ever-evolving technologies that are continually pushing at conventional boundaries. The title also alludes to the indecisiveness with which we increasingly view images, particularly since their historically based presumption of veracity has been radically eroded in the last decade, with the expansion of the digital imaging toolbox," writes the Jamestown Arts Center.

The event goes from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Something isn't right, though, and when a body surfaces, you and your fellow passengers have to root out the culprit before you're the next victim."
