The main exhibition features 100 photographs by 100 prominent and emerging photographers from over 40 countries with an equal number of men and women participants. The exhibition, curated by Jerome De Perlinghi and co-curated by Ghadah Alrawi and Carol Johnson, focuses on the theme of "Main Street, a Crossroad of Cultures" as interpreted by the individual photographers. This year’s edition will include four additional exhibits, making Historic Downtown Wilson, NC a real crossroad for photography. The Eyes on Main Street Kids Gallery, presented as both indoor and outdoor exhibits, is the outcome of our Youth Photography Workshops run by Peter Fitzpatrick with alumni from Columbia College Chicago and local photographers. This program, made possible with the generous support of Canon USA, demonstrates the talents of young participants when given a chance to express themselves. Please look at their portfolio in The Kids Gallery. The Artist in Residence program is fast becoming a popular stay for photographers from all around the world, looking to work on a personal project. Eyes on Australia, a look at Contemporary Photography in Australia, curated by Lucy Stranger, will be another very popular and strong exhibit in 2019.
