FAYETTE, Iowa (September 21, 2010) — The Bing-Davis Memorial Gallery at Upper Iowa University in Fayette, Iowa, will host an exhibit entitled, “Through the Lens: Works by Scott Lebin and Jerry Wadian,” from October 4 through November 5.
Elissa Cox, UIU assistant professor of art, who coordinated the exhibit for the gallery cites the words of American photographer, Margaret Bourke-White, who said: “The camera is a remarkable instrument. Saturate yourself with your subject, and the camera will all but take you by the hand and point the way.”
“Both Scott Lebin and Jerry Wadian have been using the camera to capture the world around them for much of their careers,” Cox noted. “They have dedicated their passion to studying the people, animals and objects in their world and then translating their vision with a lens. They both can capture a moment that gives the viewer a glimpse into a unique universe or an amazing adventure.”
“The world is filled with magnificent images both close to home and f`ar away,” Lebin added. “I am pleased to share the inspirational world that I see when I am looking for the beautiful images that are abundant in our lives.”
An artists’ reception for “Through the Lens: Works by Scott Lebin and Jerry Wadian” is scheduled Homecoming weekend from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, October 9. The Bing-Davis Memorial Gallery, which is located in Edgar Fine Arts Hall on the UIU campus, is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
