Photo exhibit, wine tasting planned this month at arts center

The Southern Indiana Center for the Arts will feature the works of a local photographer in the main gallery from Jan. 13 through Feb. 22.

EVOND Photography is being produced by Emma VonDielingen, who lives in Seymour with her husband and three cats, according to a news release from the center at 2001 N. Ewing St. in Seymour. She also is an author.

Photography always has been a passion of hers, and in 2014 she began to pursue her degree for visual communications with a concentration in photography. Her photography is designed to evoke the perception of desire, intrigue and beauty, and her goal is to use her camera to tell new stories and open unexplored worlds, a place of curious individualism that hints at a sense of beauty.

This free gallery exhibit will kick off the center’s membership drive.

Besides the photography opening from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Jan. 13, Nancy Brock with Northside Liquors will have a few of her best vendors on hand for a wine tasting.

“The center has been here for 25 years,” Executive Director Darnell Dukes said. “We want to be around for many more years to come. Without the financial help of our community and county, we would not be able to offer quality programs, from gallery exhibits to kids art camps to concerts.”
