We are thrilled to welcome Evanston photographer and educator David Pritchett as the next featured artist in our ongoing exhibition series Local Art @ EPL.  His show – titled Daily China – is currently on display on the 2nd floor of EPL’s Main Library where you can catch it through November 30th.  Captured between 2008 and 2014, Pritchett’s fascinating images explore China’s careening city buses, rural Buddhist temples, and street-side restaurants in an effort to “reflect a shared humanity amid the unique present of an ancient culture.”  Don’t miss this excellent exhibit, and make sure to check back with Off the Shelf later in November for a featured interview with the artist himself.  Stay tuned.
