“I absolutely love how the curators handled my storefront church images,” Nash said. “I would never have thought of the arrangement they chose. So much of the success of an exhibit depends on how curators place the art. It definitely affects how art patrons view and respond to the work.”

Sunny Nash, recognized by Women in Photography International, uses literature and visual media to preserve history, and to document contemporary urban life. Nash’s part of the REINVENTORY Exhibition includes a selection of 20 images from her collection, Shopping for Hope: a photographic study of storefront churches across America–New York, Houston, Los Angeles, Newark, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Santa Fe and Nashville.

The Collaborative Gallery is located at 421 W. Broadway in Long Beach, California. For information on this event and other Long Beach arts news, contact Cynthia Lujan of the Arts Council for Long Beach.
