Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In many ways the early art of William Christenberry is the fusion of two worlds: the familiar folkish landscape of his Hale County grandparents, and the elite world of expressionism that Prof. Mel Price ushered him into at the University of Alabama. Through both artistic styles and varied mediums Christenberry captured a world beyond lens and object, a world both disappearing and reappearing in altered form, as if two dimensions of time and history in Alabama's Black Belt were colliding, each vying for supremacy. This is an important reflection on the region by one of America's foremost artists."
— Wayne Flynt, author of Alabama in the Twentieth Century
