William C. Crawford publishes book

William C. Crawford of Winston-Salem has published his third book, “Drive-By Shooting: Crawdaddy Shoots North Carolina by Car,” with Linda Holderness, editor.

Shooting in the style of Stephen Shore, Bill Eggleston and Lee Friedlander of the New York school of photography, Crawford helped invent “Forensic Foraging photography,” a throwback approach to modern digital photography.

Crawford spent five years exploring his home state of North Carolina. He typically traveled by car, keeping his mind open for often unseen photographic opportunities.

The book is available on Kindle starting at $2.99.

Rosen Sculpture Competition returns

The Rosen Sculpture Competition & Exhibition brings a diversity of American sculpture — from the whimsical to profound — to the Appalachian State University campus.

The call for entries for the 34th annual competition is open now through Feb. 28 to artists 18 or older (professional, amateur, student) living in the U.S. Ten completed works will be chosen for installation on the campus, with an additional piece chosen for display at the Blowing Rock Art and History Museum.

All artists whose works are installed will receive an honorarium and the top three artists will also receive cash prizes: $3,000 for first place, $2,000 for second and $1,000 for third. The selected sculptures will be installed in May.
