Remember that song “Car Wheels on a Gravel Road”? When those four wheels are the literal and philosophical vehicle for adventure, and the car contains four talented photographers, something magical is going to happen. Individually, Sandy Burr, Sue Henry, Sharon Brown Christopher, and Renee Lowery are phenomenally gifted photographers. But together, their different perspectives and points of view on an individual subject raise the bar of fine art photography to another level. For the first time, their collaborations will be shown to the public at Main Street Gallery in the exhibit As Seen…images from four perspectives.

Sandy Burr, originally from Connecticut, is a graphic designer and former interior designer whose specialty is macro photography and black and white. Renee Lowery has lived most of her life in Middle Tennessee. She has a special love for landscapes and abandoned buildings and structures. Sharon Brown Christopher is a retired pastor who has traveled the world. She has an interest in the abstract, and her unique style brings movement to her subjects. Sue Henry is a retired music educator and professional musician with a commitment to finding beauty in the colors, shapes, and details that are so often overlooked or missed by others. Alone, they have a singular vision. But as Sharon Brown Christopher will tell you, collectively they become in their artistic expression more than the sum of their parts: a trilogy of Vision, Creativity, and Synergy. “Together we investigate the same subject from the tiniest detail to the grandest view,” says Christopher. “Being a certain age gives us time to traverse uncharted paths and a freedom to create without socially defined boundaries.”

The exhibit As Seen…images from four perspectives will open with a reception on Friday, November 8, 5 to 8 p.m. at Main Street Gallery, 625 Main Street, East Nashville. The gallery will be open by appointment Monday–Wednesday, November 11–13 and will offer workshops on Wednesday, November 13. www.f4-studio.com.
