New Photography Exhibit at The Asheville Art Museum

March 13 through July 25, 2015 - Keep All You Wish: The Photographs of Hugh Mangum will be on exhibit at the Asheville Art Museum, 2 A Pack Square in downtown Asheville NC.

The Exhibit features a selection of images of early 20th century Southern society showing personalities as immediate as if they were taken yesterday. Photographer Hugh Mangum began establishing studios and working as an itinerant photographer in the early 1890s traveling by rail through North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. Remarkable for his time, Mangum attracted and cultivated a clientele that drew heavily from both black and white communities.
