"Beyond the Familiar: A Collective Response" by society for nashville's artist photographers (SNAP)

"Beyond the Familiar: A Collective Response" a collection of 30 images created by SNAP photographers from March 2020 through February 2022. Together, these images show a collective, creative response of fine art photographers during a period when “busines as usual” came to a halt. The exhibit invites viewers to consider our own responses to a changing world.

This exhibit is curated by Susan Bryant, a well-known and widely exhibited photographer. Bryant recently retired as a Professor of Art from Austin Peay University.

About the Gallery
Prophetic Justice

Poet Mary Oliver once said, "attention is the beginning of devotion." At Scarritt Bennett Center, we promote creative expressions of the inner self as critical to spiritual practice and communal formation. Since its inception, Laskey Gallery at Scarritt Bennett Center has hosted artists whose crafts and voices demonstrate and reaffirm our commitment to creating a more just world.

The artists we showcase bear witness. They invite us to examine the parts of ourselves we overlook or purposely ignore; to take in the world as it really is; to imagine what could be or could have been; to reflect on difficult seasons and painful truths; to be honest about the stories we tell, the histories we affirm, and the voices we silence; to transform, to hope.

At Scarritt Bennett Center, we work to realize a just society and promote activism on behalf of all those who live with injustice.

Few point the way like the artist.

Exhibits in Laskey Gallery are always free and open to the public.
