Judy Hills and the Civil War Exhibit

The Coastal Photo Club of New Bern is commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War in North Carolina with a traveling exhibit of 50 photographs. The images, in color and monochrome, include depictions of re-enactments as well as studies of faces and memorabilia that vividly evoke the era.

Contributors to the exhibit are local photographers Chuck Colucci, Jim Dugan, Judy Hills, Jeanne Julian, Tom McCabe, Rick Meyer, Becky Preece, and Tom Whelan.

The exhibit will be on display at the New Bern-Craven County Public Library through February 27th, and then will move to Blockbuster in New Bern as well as the Fort Macon and Kinston/Lenoir County visitors’ centers, The History Place in Morehead City, the Onslow County Museum, the Pamlico County History Center, and the Coastal Carolina Airport.

Also exhibited in the library through February 28 is “Freedom, Sacrifice, Memory,” 24 images from the state archives, the North Carolina Museum of History, and historic sites. New Bern is one of 50 libraries across the state to host the exhibit sponsored by the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources.
