Corbett Center Art Gallery features photography exhibit

An exhibition of color photographs by New Mexico State University wildlife sciences graduate student Tana Hemingway will be displayed June 16 through July 17 at the Corbett Center Art Gallery.

Hemingway, who has been taking pictures since she was seven years old, works exclusively with color photography. She uses photography as a means of documenting what she sees in the natural and human-changed worlds, and "to express feelings so as to engender them in the eyes of beholders," she said.

Hemingway's work has been published in the Southern New Mexico Magazine and displayed at the Flickinger Center in Alamogordo, the Las Cruces Convention and Visitor's Bureau, Fort Bliss Federal Credit Union and at Nabe's Coffee Bar and Newsstand. She also has exhibited her work in various state fairs and juried shows.

An opening reception for the exhibit will be held from 6-8 p.m. on June 16 at the Art Gallery, on the second floor of NMSU's Corbett Center. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission to the gallery is free.
