Always within reach of her camera, Lucinda Bunnen keenly observes to seize a decisive moment — like when clouds in the sky seem to replicate the cotton balls in the fields of the Mississippi Delta on a cool fall day, or when a cow stands perfectly still in India near the banks of the Ganges River. Her formal portraits and snapshots have included high-profile figures — Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter, Coretta Scott King, Bobby Dodd.

But for her most recent project, the renowned photographer found inspiration inside the walls of her Buckhead home. The 79 photographs capture a wide variety of objects — a deer head-shaped piece of wood, two painted pipes by a pipe fitter in Milledgeville, a 1960s baby doll carriage. The pieces include work by local artists. Some of them hail from her travels around the world. Others were discovered close to home while taking a walk with her dogs. Gathered exhibit. 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday. Exhibit runs through Oct. 31. Free. Mason Fine Art Gallery, 415 Plasters Ave., Atlanta. 404-879-1500, masonfineartandevents.com.

‘TREASURES FROM THE FREDERIC REMINGTON ART MUSEUM AND BEYOND’ AT BOOTH MUSEUM

Like the Wild West itself, Frederic Remington was a mix of legend and reality, but as they said in “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance,” “This is the West, sir. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.”

Remington (1861-1909) painted, sculpted and printed the legend. His scenes of Indian scouts, Buffalo Soldiers, cowboys and campfires are the way we remember the vanishing frontier.

Some 70 of those paintings, sculptures and personal Remington artifacts are currently on display at the Booth Western Art Museum, in an exhibit titled “Treasures From the Frederic Remington Art Museum and Beyond.”

Through Jan. 13, 2019. Open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays. $12; 65 and older, $10; students, $9; 12 and younger, free. Booth Western Art Museum, 501 Museum Drive, Cartersville. 770-387-1300, boothmuseum.org.
