ASHEBORO, NC — Randolph Community College Department of Photographic Technology, in collaboration with the town of Liberty, will present a gallery showing featuring the work of a week-long documentary project entitled Small Town, Liberty

Each year, the graduating class will focus on one small town in North Carolina to document for an entire week.  In 2015, the class visited Liberty, North Carolina, during the week of February 16 through February 22. 

The first ever Small Town, North Carolina documentary is a collaborative photography project that includes work from thirteen RCC photojournalism students as they spent seven days exploring the town of Liberty and the people who call it home. 

“The students have taken on the challenge of documenting a week of Liberty by researching stories and connecting with a family, business, organization, or small community and creating a more in-depth story,” says instructor Abbi O’Leary. 

The gallery show opening will be held on Wednesday, March 4, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at the Liberty Public Library, located at 239 South Fayetteville Street.  The event is free and open to the public.  Small Town, Liberty will be on display through the end of May on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays (9:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m.), Tuesdays (9:00 a.m. through 7:00 p.m.), and on Saturdays (9:00 a.m. through 1:00 p.m.). 

“The gallery display in the local library will highlight the photographs that capture the heart of Liberty and work together in telling its story,” says O’Leary.  “The RCC photojournalism students have poured their hearts and efforts into sharing your story—the story of Liberty, NC, so please enjoy, share, and participate in the community collaboration.”
