Photography exhibit at Red Skillet

Photographic images like this by Mansfield University student Kaitlin Tewell will be on display at the Red Skillet in Wellsboro.

Mansfield University senior and advanced photography student Kaitlin Tewell will hold a photography exhibit, “Adrenaline Junkie,” from Oct. 27 to Nov. 16 at the Red Skillet in Wellsboro. A reception will be on Thursday, Nov. 7 at 5-7 p.m.

The show is about the inevitability of death and the daily reminders of it.

“What kind of actions cause your life to flash before your eyes? Or maybe you saw something out of the corner of your eye? What about captured a photograph with something strange and incomprehensible in the background?,” asked Tewell. “The motion of a person carrying out an action is reminiscent of ghost-like qualities, which causes me to wonder what makes them so interesting. Is it the mysterious, unknown reason why or is it sparking our subconscious curiosity about the afterlife?”

This show, said the artist, is for the people who fully embrace the idea of death and live with the visions of it in their daily lives.

“The people and places in our lives are a constant reminder of the inevitability that eventually comes for us all,” said Tewell. “Maybe you hunt ghosts, seek heart-pounding thrills or just witness something that stays with you forever. Regardless, there is always something to pull you in.”

The Red Skillet is located on 104 Main St., Wellsboro. For more information visit the Facebook Event Page, “Adrenaline Junkie” by Kaitlin Tewell or contact at 570-721-2910 or tewellkm20@mansfield.edu or Martha A. Campbell (advisor/instructor) at 570-662-4505 or mcampbel@mansfield.edu.
