Art in the Library: Photographer Christy Hullum Aug. 2-28

Jul 23, 2015

The Georgetown Public Library hosts a solo exhibit of photographs called “The Invisible World: Infrared Photography by Christy Hullum” August 2-28 in the upstairs gallery area.

Landscape photographer Christy Hullum uses a modified digital camera to capture near-infrared light, which is usually invisible to the human eye. The near-infrared spectrum reveals a world similar to ours, but outrageously different at the same time. Chlorophyll in plants and trees reflects infrared light, creating shiny silver and pink leaves like cotton candy dreams. The surface of water becomes crystal clear, revealing what is lurking in the unseen murky depths. The atmosphere is peeled away, revealing dark blue skies and brilliant clouds. Take a journey into the world just out of our sight, and meet the photographer at an artist’s reception on August 6, 6-8 pm.

The exhibit can be viewed beginning Aug. 2 all the hours the library is open: Monday-Thursday 9 a.m. – 8 p.m., Friday 9 a.m. – 6 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Sunday noon – 5 p.m. The library is at 402 W. Eighth Street, Georgetown, Texas 78626. All prints are available for purchase.
