Photography Exhibit: ‘The Working Press’ to open at Penn State Fayette

2/24/2011 —

The photography exhibit “The Working Press—Moments in Time” is coming to Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus March 1–April 29. The exhibit, which features photographs taken by southwestern Pennsylvania press photographers, will be on display in the Cultural Center in the Williams Building and is free and open to the public.

The exhibit was originally displayed at the Frank L. Melega Art Museum in Brownsville and features the work of photographers Susan Brimo-Cox, John Brothers, Ed Cope, Robert Esquivel, Jim Ference, Caroline Moore, Josh Stepp, Vanna Weaver and the late Charlie Rosendale. The exhibit will officially open with a special reception from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Thursday, March 3. The public is invited to attend the reception and meet the photographers.

“The exhibit was a success at the Melega Art Museum, and I am thrilled to bring this exhibit to Penn State Fayette and share it with the community,” explains Bobby Salitrik, exhibit curator. “It is important to offer the public an opportunity to see some of the outstanding work that is done by our local press photographers, some who perform their work under difficult and sometimes dangerous conditions. When we see images in the newspaper we often take them for granted, but the impact these images have—how they capture and freeze moments in time—is how we and people long into the future will view a news event or a slice of our daily life.”

The exhibit will be open for public viewing 8 a.m.–8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m.–3 p.m. on Saturdays.
