She stands beneath a spreading oak tree, chin lifted proudly, her figure swathed in a gold dress with a sash flowing behind her, lifted by the wind. Before her is a pair of tombstones bearing the names of her ancestors.

The photograph of Dr. Alma Cobb Hobbs is a portrait of pride, strength and dignity, framed with a sense of timelessness.

“She is magnificent,” exults Burk Uzzle, her portraitist. “Tell me she is not magnificent!”

The museum is at 807 Evans St., Greenville.gmoa.org /events/burk-uzzle -exhibit

“I SHOOT FOR EMOTION. I’M NOT INTERESTED IN FACTS.”
