Carlton Heller
Photo Initiated Art
August 24th – September 23
Artist Reception: September 2nd from 4-6pm

EMPORIA, Kansas – The Emporia Arts Center will host an Artist’s Opening Reception for “Photo Initiated Art” an exhibition by Corky Heller in the Trusler Gallery, 815 Commercial St., from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Friday, September 2nd, 2022.  The show will be up for viewing August 24th through September 23rd.

Carlton “Corky” Heller is a Kansas native. His photographs speak to what it is to be from The Plains State. However, he likes to use photomanipulation to bring forth what is already there and to make it soar to the viewer. Sometimes he adjusts it very little – just using the darkroom to bring forth contrast and what the image is about; at others –  he has fun with effects and color to give the photo a more artistic interpretation.

His images are ones that we know: landscapes, vistas, sunflowers and the majestic Flint Hills. His images are what we dream; abstract, micro, and smoke interpretive. They stand on their own but also have a cohesion. There is something for everyone at “Photo Initiated Art” Make sure you put Sept. 2nd, 4pm- 6pm on your calendar!

All exhibitions in the Trusler Gallery of the Emporia Arts Center are free to the public.

Gallery Hours are 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. from Tuesday through Friday and 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.
