The Gammill Gallery is located in the west wing of Barnard Observatory. Named for Lynn and Stewart Gammill of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, longtime supporters of Southern Studies at the University of Mississippi, the Gammill Gallery hosts a variety of exhibitions devoted to documentary photography of the American South. Located in Barnard Observatory, the Gammill Gallery has featured the work of numerous photographers, including Bern and Franke Keating, Birney Imes, Jack Kotz, Todd Bertolaet, David Wharton, Wiley Prewitt, and Jane Rule Burdine. Each spring, the Gallery exhibits works produced by students in the Southern Studies Program.
The Gammill Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., except for University holidays. For more information, contact us.
This exhibit includes images from Dr. Wharton’s new photography book “Small Town South,” which will be published in the fall of 2012 by George F. Thompson Publishing.
“Small Town South” contains 117 black-and-white landscape (or “townscape”) photographs from 91 small southern communities, ranging from east Texas, to western Virginia, to the panhandle of Florida, and many places in between.
