JUROR | MARGARET STRICKLAND

Margaret Strickland, Charlotte based photographer, has been making portraits of family, friends, and strangers for over a decade. Born and raised in Valdosta, Georgia, Margaret was influenced by cultural norms of the Deep South — a foundation that would later surface as an undercurrent in her work. Margaret’s work explores concepts of gender identity and performance, expectations of the self and of society, and the confluence of these ideas in the constructed poses of intimate portraits. Her works have been shown nationally at galleries and institutions, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington D.C., and The Mint Museum Uptown, Charlotte.

The Arts Council is headquartered in downtown Rock Hill, a state-recognized cultural district. For more information on Arts Council events, contact the Arts Council of York County at 803-328-2787, by email at arts@yorkcountyarts.org, or visit our webpage at http://www.yorkcountyarts.org.
