"Visualizing Ecosystems," Photos of Environment, to Be Exhibited in Marcellus
By Michael Mancini
April 11, 2011
“Visualizing Ecosystems,” the second annual exhibit of photographs taken by SUNY Empire State College students enrolled in an interdisciplinary course investigating ecosystems from artistic and environmental perspectives is being held at the Weeks Art Gallery, Baltimore Wood Headquarters, 4007 Bishop Hill Rd., Marcellus.
The group of participating students, who were enrolled at SUNY Empire State College during the May 2010 term, learned photographic techniques for representing the natural environment, and the methods ecologists use to answer questions about ecosystems. The photos for the exhibition were selected from student submissions throughout the term and include images of the Baltimore Woods Nature Center and other local ecosystems.
The exhibit continues through April 29. Gallery hours are 9 a.m.–4 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m.–4 p.m. on Saturday. Admission is free.
