“Pierced,” an exhibit of portraits by photographer Leigh Svenson, is now on display and has an opening reception from 4-6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7 in the Blowers Gallery at UNC Asheville’s Ramsey Library. Svenson’s black-and-white photos, using the gelatin silver process, express his fascination with piercings.
Svenson has been an active photographer since the age of 12, and has a bachelor’s degree in art history from New York University. The reception and exhibit at Blowers gallery are free and open to the public. The gallery is open daily with some evening viewing hours.
