The LAAC is featuring the work of three artists this month, and will host a reception this Thursday at the arts center on East Three Notch Street.

The work of photographers Robert Evers and Denille Spears, as well as Wiregrass flintknapper and carver T.J. Moore is being featured. The artist will be honored with a reception at LAAC’s Art Center this Thursday, Nov. 8, at 5p.m.

Spears is a self-taught photographer who recently published a book of her photographs, “Remnants.” She will be signing copies of the book during the reception. The show also includes her portrait photography.

Spears said she is fascinated by old houses, buildings, bridges, and trains.

“These places have a sense of story about them, a feeling of ‘old life,’ that I tried very hard to capture in the photographs in the book,” she said.

Robert Evers studied advertising, film and history at the University of Alabama. He is well known for his local photography and graphic design work, and has long been the official photographer and videographer of the Andalusia Ballet.

He also has done much of the familiar graphics work which has branded Andalusia’s popular Candyland. The show will feature his photography.

This marks Moore’s first gallery appearance. He works in wood and bone and often appears in trade and craft shows as Lost Art Knives
