Monongalia Arts Center (MAC) welcomes photographer Thompson Holmes to the Benedum Gallery for the month of May. His new exhibition is titled Americana. Holmes has created an exhibition that captures the classic American imagery of the Pacific Nortwest and Appalachia in a fresh and nuanced style. The exhibition consists of photographs, mostly monochrome and low-saturation images, that create a modern and minimalist approach to the nostalgia of two of America’s most romaniticized regions.
