An exhibit by photographer Kyle Wilson of Clayton will open Nov. 1 with a reception catered by the Johnston County Arts Council in the Frank Creech Art Gallery on the campus of Johnston Community College.

The exhibit will be open to the public through Sunday, Dec. 4. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Saturdays, and 1 until 5 p.m. Sundays.


Wilson, whose career was in information technology, became interested in photography while in college, but did not pursue photography as a career. When he moved to North Carolina, he became interested in it again. "I was fascinated by what I found, 'left behind' in this area," Wilson said.

"Barns, farmhouses, industries, belongings, memories...all left behind. The technology side of me became inspired by High Dynamic Range Photography which is perfect for my technical brain and my vision."

Wilson has been featured on an "Around Carolina" segment of Time Warner Cable News, and has won awards at the Clayton Visual Arts Art Faire, the Johnston County Art and Food Festival, and the Cary Photographic Artists 6th Annual Open Juried Show.

His work has been exhibited at the State Street Art Fair in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Michigan State University Festival of the Arts, Sugarloaf Crafts in Chantilly, Va., Gaithersburg, Md., and Philadelphia, Pa., Craftsmen's Classics in Richmond, Va., Columbia, S.C., Chantilly, Va., Cary Lazy Daze and Cary Spring Daze, Cary, NC, Colorfest in Thurmont, Md., Poquoson Seafood Festival, Poquoson, Va., N.C. Seafood Festival, Morehead City, Centerfest in Durham, Peakfest in Apex, Artscape in Baltimore, Md., and the N.C. Apple Festival in Hendersonville.
