The Art Academy of Cincinnati hosts an exhibition reception for Alabama-based photographer Jared Ragland’s show of lens-based art at the AAC’s Covergys Gallery. Ragland is the former photo editor and digital imaging specialist for the White House under both the Bush and Obama presidencies, and Everything Is Going To Be Alright ostensibly demonstrates the influence of Walker Percy’s existentialist novel The Moviegoer upon the artist during his tenure in Washington, D.C. According to the press release, the daily grind of public-sector life so resonated with Ragland that he began a philosophical exploration of life, narrative and meaning.
