Moody Southern elegance

Brooklyn artist Amy Williams, in her third solo exhibition at 440 Gallery, presents a series of dramatic large-scale color photographs depicting the classic, moody image of Southern elegance.

The exhibition runs May 15-June 22 with an opening reception May 16 from 6-8 p.m.

Williams says of her work, “On a recent trip to Savannah, Georgia last spring, I fell in love with the Spanish moss found everywhere. For me, it was romantic, gothic and dreamy. My camera lens was perpetually pointed up looking for a new composition to be discovered within the trees, leaves and moss configurations.”

The 440 Gallery is Park Slope’s only artist-run gallery. It is open Thursdays and Fridays, 4-7 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays, 12-6 p.m. The gallery is at 440 Sixth Avenue; call 718-499-3844 or visit
