The first exhibition of a Southerly Gold, a collective of four photographers who live in New Orleans photographers and also happen to be female, will open on Monday, April 9 at the Crescent City’s May Gallery. An opening reception, combined with a celebration of the group’s website launch, will be held from 6 to 9 p.m.

The gallery is located under the Claiborne bridge in the city’s St. Claude area of the Ninth Ward, at 2839 N. Robertson St., Suite 105.

The photographers of Southerly Gold include NOPA member Aubrey Edwards, along with Ariya Martin, Akasha Rabut and Elena Ricci.

As their first collaborative project, each member chose a color from the CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow and key/black) spectrum to photograph in either literal or figurative fashion. The final exhibit includes 50 images.

After the opening, the exhibit will be open through May 6, by appointment only. For more information, please see the Southerly Gold website.
