Walter LeCroy, owner of Imaging Arts and Rock and Read Books is pleased to announce the opening of a very special exhibit: “Elvis’ Mystery Kiss: From Charleston With Love”.

The exhibit will feature a number of photographs taken from Alfred Wertheimer’s portfolio of Elvis’s tryst with Charleston’s Barbara Gray, the famous girl from “The Kiss” photo. If you're unfamiliar with the significance and lore attached to the infamous tongue-to-tongue photograph, take a peek at this article from August's Vanity Fair.

On October 7th from 5 to 8 p.m., the pre-Priscilla Barbara Gray will be at Imaging Arts to sign prints of “The Kiss.” The prints will be packaged in a deluxe slip-case with a hardcover first edition of Baby Let’s Play House: Elvis Presley and the Women Who Loved Him by Alanna Nash. Ms. Nash is the journalist who solved the 55-year old photographic mystery and will also be present for the book signings. A limited number of signed books and prints are available.

Imaging Arts is located in downtown Charleston at 175 King Street.
