The Southeast Museum of Photography’s Lyonia Gallery is featuring the works of documentary photographer Rick Lang through Oct. 24. The gallery is in the Lyonia Environmental Center (LEC), which is part of the Deltona Regional Library complex at 2150 Eustace Ave., Deltona.
Lang, director of photography at the Crealdé School of Art in Winter Park, uses black-and-white photography to display the history and culture of the American South. His exhibition, “Florida Vernacular,” presents 25 images of vernacular subject matter that reveal the often simple signs and buildings from Florida, his home state. The images demonstrate his commitment to documenting the signs and symbols used by everyday residents to make their voices and opinions public.
The Lyonia Gallery is operated by the Southeast Museum of Photography in partnership with the LEC. The gallery presents exhibitions and programs related to the environment, land use, local history and regional culture.
The LEC is open from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays; 9 a.m. - 7:30 p.m. Thursdays; 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; and 1 - 5 p.m. Sundays. Admission to the gallery and environmental center is free.
