In Nashville, Tennessee, art-world veteran Susan Sherrick is half of the duo behind Joint, a new series of pop-up art and fashion shows. And this month, she is bringing a slice of Dixie to New York City as guest curator of an exhibition at Manhattan’s Howard Greenberg Gallery.

Scenes from the South is a collection of thirty images taken by prominent photographers below the Mason-Dixon line from 1936 to 2012. “Basically, the show is based on memories,” Sherrick says, “images that have resonated with me and the time I’ve spent in the South.” It runs through June 1 and features photographs from Garden & Gun contributors Caroline Allison, David McClister, and Mikael Kennedy as well as work from such legends as William Christenberry, William Eggleston, Robert Frank, Lee Friedlander, Berenice Abbott, and Walker Evans.
