"Gone But Not Forgotten" Exhibit Opening

July 17th from 5-7 p.m.

Delta Blues Museum

Curated by Delta historian and photographer Billy Johnson, "Gone But Not Forgotten" features color photography highlighting Delta Blues artists who left behind more than memories.

"At these festivals the crowd saw the entertainers on the stage. These photos capture the friendships and camaraderie backstage. Festivals are more of a reunion among friends than a job." ~ Billy Johnson

"Billy Johnson has been a friend, fan, supporter and promoter of Delta Blues artists. His images capture the carefree, human moments on and off the stage. The artists' ease with Billy and camaraderie amongst themselves really shows through." ~ Shelley Ritter, Museum Director
