CURRENT EXHIBIT!
 
JOHN DUNLAP IS SHOWING HIS
HAND-MANIPULATED POLAROIDS AT ELLIE'S COFFEE SHOPPE
ON UNION STREET IN OLD DOWNTOWN CONCORD.
 
The ongoing exhibit of 25 photos has been up since April 2013
and will remain in place with new photos regularly substituted
until all the photos are sold (or owner Felipe gets tired of it).
 
Ellie's is located in downtown Concord at 37 Union Street S.
 
John will also have a show of some of his hand-manipulated Polaroids at the Cabarrus Arts Council show of local artists this Autumn, 2014.

Photography has been a major part of John Dunlap's life, starting with his earning a B.A. in Journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His work has appeared in magazines and newspapers and been documented on television. The joy of doing hand-manipulated Polaroids, sepia, black & white and color images with the goal of creating artistic images is ongoing. Having art gallery shows and the generous media coverage that has accompanied them, makes it all the better.

As you'll see on this site, there are various kinds of photos and subject matters to enjoy. The themes Dunlap works in are many -- like one of his photo heroes, Edward Weston, he doesn't like the idea of being pigeon-holed into doing only one genre.

So you'll have a chance to enjoy Dunlap's Polaroid art, as well as digital and film photos of themes like nature, architecture, the ocean, sports, travel, flora and fauna, seasons and female nudes. Regarding the latter, it is important to let you know that Dunlap's nudes are based on classic art images of the female form. As a society, Americans could learn some lessons from our European brethren regarding an appreciation of the human form for its art value.

On this site you'll also see a complete listing of the the art gallery shows that Dunlap has had over the years as well as ones either currently going on or getting ready to happen. In the last year-and-a-half Dunlap has had four one-man shows and feature stories in The Charlotte Observer, Independent Tribune and Cabarrus Monthly magazine, among others. Dunlap has had his art profiled by CBS Sunday Morning, The Philadelphia Inquirer, USA Today, Washington Times, Wilmington (DE) News Journal and many others.

If you are an art gallery/museum professional, please enjoy your tour of Dunlap's photos and they will hopefully serve to inspire you to want to do a show. Dunlap's Polaroid art is very much influenced by French Impressionism, so perhaps you may want a current-day tie-in to that form of art.

Regardless of who you are, remember to always support the arts in your community.
