Photographer Talbot Easton Selby has solo show

“Conjure,” a solo art exhibition featuring the work of Coastal Carolina University photography professor Talbot Easton Selby, opened Sept. 15 and continues through Nov. 12 at Artspace 560 in North Myrtle Beach. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

With 46 pieces that range from black and white to color photography on the themes of religion, Southern folklore and myth, Selby calls the show “a growth opportunity to see where I can expand the work.” He is chair of CCU’s Department of Visual Arts.

Born and raised in central Mississippi, Selby aims to create an experience that will generate a sense of questioning about the themes explored by his artwork. His work has been published in a number of art publications including Canadian Art magazine, Metropolis magazine and Delta magazine. His photography is also included in the permanent collection of Delta State University.

Selby was the 2008 recipient of the Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters award for photography. He earned a BFA in photography from Delta State (2003) and an MFA in visual arts from Clemson University (2006), where he studied under photographer Sam Wang.

Artspace 506 is located at 506 37th Ave. S., North Myrtle Beach. The gallery is open Wednesday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
