Wesleyan University is indeed fortunate that professor photographer Carl Lewis has agreed to share his sports photography in the Mims Art Gallery for an extended exhibit from March 25 to September 3. Gallery hours are 9-5 Monday thru Friday.
Over the past decade Carl Lewis had donated countless hours chronicling Wesleyan sports…not merely covering victory and defeat but extending his talent and elevating his sports photography to photographic art. About fifty photographs will be in venue from stop motion action shots to team portraits in Battling Bishop football, baseball, women’s softball, men’s and women’s soccer, volley ball, tennis and golf. The greater Wesleyan community will identify with this exhibition.
Carl Lewis, PhD is an Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at Wesleyan University. Never idle in his free time, besides surfing and photography, he is an avid decoy carver and has exhibited his decoys both in Harkers Island competition and the Four Sisters Gallery.
Recently he has focused on interest on sports photography, Carolina landscape, marketing subjects and the CSX railroad, taking prizes and awarded prestigious cover spots in 2019 – 2020 Tradewinds Magazine published by the NC Fisheries. Newspapers and different television networks also feature Lewis’ photography; he was interviewed about his work as a photographer on CBS Good Morning America. He continues to exhibit at the Station Square gallery in downtown Rocky Mount.
