Smart Bets: Somewhere Beyond the Constellation Norma

Worship, loss, ceremony and regeneration are the themes of Somewhere Beyond the Constellation Norma, a black-and-white photography exhibition by Ralph Burns. The show, which opens at Pink Dog Creative (348 Depot St. in the River Arts District) on Friday, April 20, is Burns' first solo exhibition in N.C. since 2005. Images include a Santeria healer in Cuba, a street preacher in Boston, Billy Graham in Asheville and Elvis pilgrims in the Meditation Garden at Graceland. The show runs through June 30; an opening reception is held this Friday from 5-8 p.m.
