New Exhibit at Burrison Gallery

February 22, 2011, Volume 57, No. 23


The Burrison Gallery presents Yosemite, Yellowstone and the Tetons—Photographs by Jerry Porter now through April 4.

Photographs of America’s National Parks have taken on iconic status through the work of Ansel Adams and others. Unlike artifacts in a museum, nature is constantly changing. Glaciers melt. Trees grow. Days are sunny. Days are cloudy. Every day presents a different image. These photographs were taken during a trip to Yosemite in July 2007 and a visit to the Tetons and Yellowstone in August 2010.

Dr. Jerry Porter, professor emeritus of mathematics, has served as associate dean for computing in SAS, chair of the Faculty Senate and president of PASEF. His previous exhibit at the Burrison Gallery featured photographs from the Mt. Hagen (Papua New Guinea) SingSing (Almanac February 16, 2010).

A reception will be held at the Burrison Gallery on Thursday, February 24, from 4 to 6 p.m.
