April 7: Jen Ervin brings fresh photography to Charleston with Redux’s latest exhibition

by Melissa Hayes, Charleston City Paper

“The idea is to bring something different to the community,” says Jen Ervin of the two-part photography exhibition she’s curated, now open at Redux Contemporary Art Center. “Redux really offers a chance for artists who are trying to push boundaries.” Ervin hopes the show reflects the dialogue that takes place between photographer and subject and that a dialogue is created in turn between viewers and the displayed work.

The Arc is Ervin’s own photo series and half of the exhibition. The series chronicles segments of a summer spent along the Little Pee Dee River with her daughters. It attempts to immortalize these memories and contemplates the ephemeral nature of time.
