HIGH POINT, N.C., May 21, 2014 – High Point University instructor of art Benita VanWinkle has been selected to show two of her photographs at the “Hue” exhibition from May 22 to June 15 at the Darkroom Gallery in Essex Junction, Vt.

Out of 660 submissions, the juror selected 55 photographs for the exhibition, including VanWinkle’s photographs, “Fatigue, 5 cents, Salisbury, NC 5-2012” and “Hairdryer, Spruce Pine, NC 6-2013.”

The exhibition is juried by Al Satterwhite, who has photographs in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, the National Museum of African American History and Culture and numerous other public and private collections. Satterwhite has won many national and international awards and is considered an authority on color and design.

“I am honored to have my work selected to be in any exhibition of photography or art since it is such an important part of my life, especially one juried by such an esteemed juror as Al Satterwhite, whose work I have followed for years,” VanWinkle says.

In regard to “Hue,” Satterwhite says, “I was very impressed with the quality of work, and the wide range of vision of the many photographers.”

“Fatigue, 5 cents” and “Hairdryer” are part of VanWinkle’s larger series called “Riding the Rail,” which feature photos taken within a short distance of a railroad track.

VanWinkle has been featured in Our State magazine, PainPathways magazine and other national exhibitions.

“I have been a professional photographer for over 30 years, and I can’t imagine not making images every day,” VanWinkle says. “I feel very gifted to be able to share my art with others in a public setting.”
