f5.0 Five Photographers/Five Perspectives
For forty years or more, Wofford faculty members G.R. Davis, Terry Ferguson, Peter Schmunk, David Whisnant and campus photographer Mark Olencki have all been seriously engaged with photography as an artistic medium. As a corollary to travel and scientific investigation, as a serious avocation, as a profession, and certainly as a passion, photography has been a frequent, even daily, activity through much of their adult lives. Longtime friends and travel companions in various combinations, they have gathered photographs across the United States as well as in Europe, Africa, and South America. For this exhibition, each photographer will display a group of images that focus on a theme of his own choosing. The collection of works on view reveals the overlapping interests and individual perspectives of these five Wofford photographers.

Julia Elizabeth Tolbert, Paintings and Drawings
Julia Elizabeth Tolbert was a native of Ninety Six, S.C. She earned the M.A. from the University of Georgia where she studies under Lamar Dodd. Throughout her life she worked variously in Athens, Ga.; several South Carolina locations; and Syracuse, N.Y. Her active period was through the 1940s into the mid-1950s. Because she was not interested in selling her work or even showing it very much, except for a few museums, such as the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston, S.C., and Atlanta's (Ga.) High Museum, she is now unknown.
In 2011, the Tolbert family donated nearly the entire life-work corpus of her art to Wofford College, including paintings in oil and watercolor, drawings, prints, and ceramics. The first small group from the collection was presented to the public in 2012. This second group continues our effort to bring a worthy artist back to the public eye.
