With a characteristic knack for visual storytelling, Lori Vrba assembles an energetic, engaging, and well-assembled exhibition for Greenville’s Southeast Center for Photography. Each photo is selected from the pages of Diffusion IX, the most current issue of the artful photography annual. The issue focuses on threads that bind, and Vrba pulls an eclectic company of images whose colors, textures, and senses of illusion pulse with shared energy. The result is an artful, moody, and complex show that will trap viewers’ gazes while rousing their curiosities.                          

Diffusion will be on view at the SE Center for Photography, 116 E Broad St, Greenville, through August 31. The center is open Wed–Fri, 10am–4:30pm, and Sat, 10am–4pm. An opening reception will be held on August 2 from 6–8pm. For more information, visit sec4p.com.
