Touching Magic: Scenes from an Enchanted Wilderness
a pop up exhibition during the Slow Exposures Festival
September 14-17, 2023, Zebulon, GA
The undeveloped barrier islands off the coast of Georgia remain wilderness while bearing witness to some human presence since 2,000 BC. Decaying and ruined mansions, feral horses, donkeys, and boars document memories of human activity, where now there are more animals than people. In this place of extreme beauty one finds truth and mystery, and hope. In Touching Magic: Scenes from an Enchanted Wilderness, 28 artists share photographs that illustrate the charm and grace of this land. We hope that these photographs evoke empathy for the environment and the desire to cherish it. Please visit
for information on understanding and protecting Georgia’s coast and its wildlife.
