The New Mexico State University Art Gallery's lunchtime program, Art a la Carte, will present photographer Stephen Petegorsky with "Mortality and Other Images" from noon to 1 p.m. Friday, Jan. 10, at the Art Gallery.

The gallery is located in Williams Hall near the intersection of Solano Drive and University Avenue.

Petegorsky is an artist and freelance photographer whose works are about time, change and mortality. His gold leaf images are inspired by the aging surfaces of old photographs and paintings and the feelings evoked when an image's meanings are transformed by the passage of time, said Jackie Mitchell, the gallery's education curator. His subject matter also includes landscapes, animals and images made on his trips to Nicaragua and Honduras between 1998 and the present.


Petegorsky, who lives in Northhampton, Mass., received his Master of Fine Arts in photography from the Rhode Island School of Design and his artwork has been exhibited internationally. He has taught at Amherst College, Smith College, Hampshire College and the University of Connecticut.

Petegorsky's work is on display at the Art Gallery along with artist Barbara Kassel. The display will run through Jan. 12.

Art a la Carte features performances from the literary, music, dance and experimental arts community. All Art a la Carte events are free and open to the public. Free parking will be provided and guests are encouraged to bring a bag lunch. For more information contact Mitchell at (505) 646-4010.
