Photography Brown Bag Talk: Dawn Surratt
Dawn Surratt earned a B.A. in Studio Arts from the University of North Carolina in Greensboro and a Bachelor and master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Georgia. Her years of work with dying patients in hospice settings is the backbone of her imagery. Surratt’s photographs, with photo-based book structures, installations, and objects are visual meditations exploring concepts of grief, transition, healing and spirituality.
Her work has been widely shown and is held in private and permanent collections across the United States. She is a 2016 Critical Mass Finalist and a 2018 nominee for the Royal Photography Society’s 100 Heroines.
She is a full-time artist living in rural North Carolina with her husband.
Every third Wednesday of the month at noon, photography enthusiasts gather at the Museum to hear talks by regional photographers, gallerists, historians, curators, and collectors.
