Cabarrus Arts Council
Photographs by Sonia Handelman Meyer on Display at The Galleries August 17-October 10
The Galleries’ first-ever solo exhibition, which will feature photographs by Sonia Handelman Meyer, will be on display Aug. 17-Oct. 10. Meyer, who is 95, plans to attend special events, including Art Walk and Collectors Circle, during the exhibition. As a member of the New York Photo League, Meyer brought awareness to the plight of immigrants, minorities and the poor as she photographed the city in the 1940s. Her amazing eye and unimposing persona allowed her to take pictures that pull the viewer in and give us a better understanding of the social, political, and personal struggles of the period.

The Cabarrus Arts Council is dedicated to providing a wide variety of cultural arts programs that celebrate the rich diversity of our county and our world.
