Photographs by Leigh Svenson

"Pierced," an exhibition of black-and-white photographs by Leigh R. Svenson, will be on view October 3-30 at UNC Asheville's Blowers Gallery. An opening reception will be held from 4-6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7, in the gallery. 

Svenson's black and white macro portraits uniquely explore the mainstreaming of this "once revolutionary and avant-garde" form of physical adornment. 

Svenson, who serves as Campus Auditoria Manager, bought his first camera at the age of twelve and has been taking photographs since. He holds a bachelor's degree in art history from New York University. Svenson was the recipient of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts for his video production "Wahconah Revisited" in 1988 and has credits on dozens of educational and instructional video productions.

On View: October 3 - 30
Reception: Friday, October 7, 4-6pm
