Lost on the Road to Oblivion, The Vanishing Beauty of Coal Country - Photography by Carl Galie

Throughout our nation’s history, the arts have been instrumental in protecting many of our national treasures. Through his recent project, “Lost on the Road to Oblivion, The Vanishing Beauty of Coal Country,” Winston-Salem photographer Carl Galie hopes to continue this legacy. His exhibit takes the viewer on a journey through the Southern Appalachians and documents the controversial practice of mountaintop removal in this hauntingly beautiful series about the natural environment. The project raises the question of whether years of environmental regulation should be overruled in an attempt to stimulate the economy by allowing this industrial coal mining practice to continue. Exhibit runs August 25 - October 21
