All that Jazz for Photographer Patrick Hinely '73

Washington and Lee photographer Patrick Hinely, Class of 1973, is one of three artists whose work is on display at WVTF-FM’s gallery in Roanoke this month.

When he’s not photographing events at his alma mater, Patrick is pursuing his other passion, photographing jazz musicians. He made the images in this show between 1974 and 2007. They were published as a calendar book in 2007, by the German Jazzprezzo imprint of Nieswand Verlag.

An open house at WVTF on Friday, Oct. 15, from 5 to 7 p.m., will feature live music by the Star City Harp Ensemble and refreshments from Center Stage of Rocky Mount. The studios, offices and gallery of the National Public Radio affiliate are at 3520 Kingsbury Lane in Roanoke. The exhibition runs through Oct. 29. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

One of Patrick’s striking images from the exhibition is reproduced here. It’s a 1988 shot of Sun Ra’s Arkestra in performance at Lime Kiln in Lexington.
