The Fine Art Museum at the Fine and Performing Arts Center of Western Carolina University concludes the summer exhibit season with “Hazel Larsen Archer: Black Mountain College Photographer.”

The college and people who lived and created in the experimental arts community in the late 1940s and 1950s come alive in this collection of photographs, which will be on display from Tuesday, Aug. 22, through Saturday, Sept. 23. The exhibit, organized by the Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center in Asheville, celebrates Archer’s achievement in creating a strikingly beautiful and historically important collection of images of the cross-disciplinary college.

“Archer's photographs offer a very intimate and personal look at the Black Mountain College community of faculty and students, who we now revere for their innovation and creative verve,” said Martin DeWitt, director of Western’s Fine Art Museum. “We are very fortunate to be able to share these beautiful photographs to a wider audience here in Western North Carolina.”

Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is free. Donations are suggested. For more information about the Center’s Friends of the Arts Membership and Benefit Program, call the museum office at (828) 227-3591 or visit the Web site at www.wcu.edu/fapac.
