Library to hold reception for photographer
A Stanton A. Tubb photography display is available for viewing at Magness Library now through Christmas. The Heart of Dixieland exhibit features various landscapes from the South, with some with local interest. Here a panoramic shot of Great Falls in Rock Island, and Monkey face in Highlands, North Carolina are featured.

A reception will be held for fine art photographer Stanton A. Tubb Thursday from 3 – 6 p.m. at Magness Library. It marks the opening of his show titled “The Heart of Dixieland,” and contains photos of local landmarks including Hebe, the Birthing Tree and the Rock Island Castle.
Tubb is an award-winning landscape photographer whose work focuses on the Earth, water, sky and the signs of man.
“A sense for photography may come from many sources. As a child my loving mom and aunts encouraged me to color and draw,” says Tubb. “My family and the opportunities to travel and see beautiful places inspired and heighten the joy of creating artistic photography which opened my eyes to see the beauty of the little things.”
His “Dixieland in Shades of Gray and Color” are portfolios of fine art – artistic photography of the South.
“Thinking of the gray uniforms of the Confederacy, growing up in the South, and knowing the appeal of black and white photography excites me,” said Tubb. “Black and white photographs offer a certain mystery and attraction that takes us out of our normal environment of color.”
Tubb believes his photography has a story to tell, and speaks of special memories and feelings which makes life so beautiful.
The exhibit is currently on display through Christmas at the library, with many prints available for purchase. Obtain more information on the photographer at
