The Olde South Photography Series by Rick McAllister, a Newest Art in Public Places Exhibit, will be on display in the Rotunda Gallery at the St. Johns County Administration Building from December 19, 2017 through April 11, 2018.
What Ansel Adams did for the National Parks of the West and as Clyde Butcher has done for the Everglades, Rick McAllister has tried to photograph and conserve structures that represent a part of our past here in the South. Black & white images that hopefully give these elders a little dignity as they fade from our landscapes. There are currently over 400 images in the series and they include Cracker cabins and barns, textile and sugar mills, plantations and estate ruins, churches and cemeteries, and forts and fortifications.
The St. Johns County Administration Building is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
