Eight faculty and staff at this college will show their nature photographs in a Fotoseptiembre 2015 exhibit, which opens with a reception today at Sinkin EcoCentro, 1802 N. Main Ave.
The reception for “Natural Visions” 5-8 p.m. is free and open to the public.
Photographs in the exhibit are the work of Instructor Irene Abrego, Professor Edmund Lo and lab tech Tricia Buchhorn of the journalism program; photography lab tech Mark Magavern; visual arts Coordinator Rebecca Dietz; interpreting services manager Jo Hilton of the American Sign Language and interpreter training department; video resource technician Joan Fabian of the creative multimedia department; and college photographer Leonard Ziegler.
This is the second year EcoCentro is hosting this exhibit with a nature theme as part of Fotoseptiembre USA, an international photography festival.
“Natural Visions is an exhibit of nature related photography — in other words, images of natural scenes, plants, animals and other natural landscapes,” Steven Lewis, director of the service, trade and industry center, said.
Messages in the photographs include social justice issues concerning the environment and appreciation for nature, Buchhorn said.
Lewis said the backdrops for the photographs are made of recycled materials such as repurposed wood, pallets and black mesh that once covered the tennis courts.
The exhibit will be on display until Sept. 30. Viewing hours are 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 9 a.m.-noon Saturday.
