Black & White Gallery celebrates creativity

MILLEDGEVILLE —  

Many people have heard the proverb "a picture is worth a thousand words" but do they truly understand the significance of a snapshot? A photo can capture a flash in time or a momentary glimpse of beauty that would otherwise become lost. Eleven talented artists from the Life Enrichment Center (LEC) have put this saying to good use by capturing beautiful scenes from Milledgeville and surrounding areas. 

The photos will be showcased in the fifth annual Black & White Gallery Monday, April 15. The event will be held at the Milledgeville Country Club, in conjunction with the Super Business After Hours and a Business Expo from 5 to 8 p.m. 

Founded in 2005, The Black & White Gallery benefits The Life Enrichment Center in supporting adults with developmental disabilities.  

"Just to see them light up and to show everybody this is my picture is the most rewarding thing of it all. It's worth it all for their moment in time," said Barbara Coleman, the director of the LEC. 

As the name of the event suggests, the artwork is primarily black and white, however, this year artists will highlight each photo with a “splash of color.” 

"We think the splash of color adds almost another depth of meaning to the photographs," said Coleman. "It's as if the color pulls you right into the picture." 

The main objective of the event is to show how the click of a camera can help bring people with developmental disabilities closer to their communities. 

"The purpose of it is to really show the community the capability of the people we have here," said Coleman. "Our whole thing is, we're more alike than we are different. And that's what we want to portray to the community."
