CL Critic Okla Jones Recommends: Metaverse is a collection of photographs inspired by 17th-century Dutch and Flemish painters. Julie Blackmon created this exhibition with the people and places specific to her community. She also realized how unique and beautiful the scenes of everyday life can be, even though we overlook them with astounding ease. The majority of her pieces feature children, which can be symbolic of purity and innocence in this crazy world that we live in. Pictures are worth a thousand words, and these photos speak volumes. — OJ

From the venue:

Julie Blackmon Biography Contemporary American photographer Julie Blackmon draws inspiration from the raucous tavern scenes of 17th-century Dutch and Flemish painters, creating photographs based around the people and places in her small community.

Blackmon has compared her surroundings to a giant Hollywood prop closet, where a Starbucks employee out on a smoke break may appear in her next photograph, or the beauty shop she passes every day becomes the setting for a new piece. “It’s a fun perspective to have … to see the world around you as a potential story or idea.
