The Triangle in North Carolina has a rich history in the arts with each of its four member cities having art exhibit openings on a different Friday each month. Every Friday evening can be spent gallery hopping in a nearby town, to view the latest work of artists, something that I found inspiring and fascinating when I first moved here ten years ago. But all that wonderful community engagement and support for the arts came to a screeching halt with the arrival of the Covid-19 virus, as venues closed up and exhibits were cancelled.

Hopefully, through their own words and images, we can dive into their photographic mind and discover what gets their creative juices flowing, to help us better understand the artistic process generally (and theirs more specifically), expand the base of our knowledge, and broaden our own vision.
