Hazel Larsen Archer: Black Mountain College PhotographerNovember 18, 2011 - April 08, 2012
When Hazel Larsen arrived at Black Mountain College for the 1944 Summer Institute, the college was host to gifted artists in many disciplines. Under the influence of her mentor, Josef Albers, the young photographer developed a visual aesthetic power and sensitivity. She stayed at the college for nine years, first as a student and then as a faculty member. Full of insight and beauty, Hazel Larsen Archer’s Black Mountain College photographs provide an invaluable record of time, place and a group of people that changed our culture.
