CARTHAGE, Mo. —
A photo exhibit opening today at artCentral details an obsession with oxidized metal. "The Color of Rust" showcases the work of photographer Linda Teeter over the past 18 months. It will be on display until Sept. 29.
The pictures were taken because of a surprise interest in rust, according to a press release from artCentral. Teeter realized that the rust she had become enchanted by represented a journey of growing older and losing youth.
In addition to photography techniques, Teeter used printshop techniques for several of the images, some of which are printed on metallic papers.
Hyde House Gallery, located at 1110 E. 13th St., is open noon to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday. An opening reception will be held at 6 p.m. today at the gallery. Details: 417-358-4404.
