Unnamed photos by artist Carol Nye of the vibrant Uyghur culture and people in China’s western Xinjiang Province.
FALLBROOK — The Friends of the Fallbrook Library are honored to present two new free art exhibits, “Caravanserai: A Look Back,” a photo journalistic journey by Carol Nye, and “Recollection,” a sculpture display by Dean Ramos, July 10 to Aug. 25.
Explore the vibrant Uyghur culture and people in China’s western Xinjiang Province through the lens of Carol Nye, noted local photographer. The photographs in her solo exhibit document a proud and resilient people, as they were in 1986 before the severe repression that human rights groups have termed crimes against humanity. After leaving Xinjiang, Carol crossed the mountains of Tibet on the way to Nepal. Many of the rest stops along the way reminded her of a caravanserai.
Carol Nye has had a notable career. Her work has been shown extensively, both nationally and internationally, and has been featured in numerous publications. She taught photography at Mira Costa College, Grossmont College and UCSD Extension.
The sculpture of Dean Ramos, “Recollection,” on the Reading Patio explores psychological and emotional states, human relationships, connections and disconnections that are part of universal human conditions. His painted ceramics will evoke personal responses from each viewer.
Dean is a full time professor at Mira Costa College and creates works in multiple sculpture media.
The special artist reception will be held Friday, July 14, 6 to 8 p.m. This is a unique opportunity to meet the artists. Live music by Frank Alves and light refreshments will be offered. Everyone is invited to this free event. The Fallbrook Library is located at 124 S. Mission Road.
