2020 was a struggle for many, and as the pandemic continues, CCAC invited artists and neighbors to share the photographs they’ve made as a silver lining. While some traditional forms of photography utilize a literal layer of silver suspended in gelatin, other artistic practices pursue this lightness through more metaphoric channels, and still other approaches have art-making centered as the silver lining itself. Of course, for some there is no “silver lining,” and that perspective was invited to be shared as well. This exhibition includes 50 images, representing 34 photographers both from near and far. Responses to the theme range from sobering looks at the isolation of the pandemic, to intimate moments of reverie, to meditative examinations of the natural world.
