Photography lecture and reception slated for Feb. 24

February 24, 2011 2:30 PM–5:30 PM

A visiting artist lecture will be held with Timothy Archibald on Thursday, Feb. 24 at 2:30 p.m. in the Visual Arts Building, Room 215.

Archibald, a Schenectady native whose work is featured in the Photography Invitational Exhibition 2011, will talk about “Echolilia,” his collection of photographs that directs the lens on his son’s autism. Archibald’s work was recently featured in an article in The New York Times.

An artist’s reception will follow the lecture from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public.

Also included in the exhibition are works by Clarissa Amaral ’11 and Raymond Felix of Troy. The exhibit was conceived and curated by professor Martin Benjamin, and runs through March 11.

Amaral was recently selected as a finalist in the 31st annual College Photo Contest, sponsored by Nikon. Her work, titled “Union Faces,” is a series of close-up portraits of Union staff, students, faculty and administrators. Amaral was chosen from thousands of college students from around the world.
