Join The Foothills Arts Council for the opening reception of Dance for the River an exhibit featuring the photography of Christine Rucker.

On display April 18 through May 18, DANCE FOR THE RIVER, presented by Yadkin Riverkeeper, is a traveling multimedia exhibit and educational experience that connects audiences with the Yadkin River, the region’s primary water source, through dance, photography, and video.

Photographer Christine Rucker who lives on the Yadkin River, photographed dancers as they improvised to the river’s diverse landscapes. Rucker and dancers traveled to some of the most pristine stretches of water and to some of the most environmentally sensitive sites throughout the watershed, creating a one-of-a-kind series of images that interpret the river in new ways.
