Arts Center Gallery Talk Announcement:

The exhibit is a sampling of the wide range of work being created by college level photography educators in central and western New York.  24 photographers are featured, representing 18 Colleges and/or Universities.The show is quite eclectic, and presents a variety of technical and aesthetic approaches to photography.  Many of the photographers utilize digital tools, while others explore historical techniques and processes.  All of the participants, however, view photography as a relevant and evolving art form that will continue to endure.
On Thursday, February 26th, three of the photographers will be coming to the gallery at 6:00 pm to discuss their work.  The photographers include Frank Cost and Susan McWhinney from RIT, and Romy Hosford from Robert Wesleyan College.  One or two additional photographers may also be in attendance.
