CORVALLIS, Ore. – A new art exhibit at Oregon State University’s Giustina Gallery will celebrate the eighth biennial photography show, “Life & Death,” from Nov. 3 through Dec. 11.
The gallery is located in The LaSells Stewart Center. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information on the gallery visit:http://oregonstate.edu/lasells/gallery.
A public art reception will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 4.
The Life & Death exhibit is presented by the Willamette PhotoArts Guild in honor of Rosie Saraga, a member who died in 2013 after a prolonged illness. The group is comprised of more than 40 photographers from around the mid-valley. For this year’s theme, 25 photographers will present their interpretations of life and death.
“Photography is very personal for most of us,” said Dan Wise, a member of the guild and owner of Wise Photo Printing. Wise added that he believes these images “serve as reminders of moments in time” that might have otherwise been forgotten.
“I think this is going to be a very complex and thought-invoking exhibit,” said Tina Green-Price, curator for Giustina Gallery. “I am really looking forward to what they will present.”
