Photographs in the Wilderness by Lloyd Sneed
"Mendenhall Glacier" by Loyd Sneed

“Mendenhall Glacier” by Loyd Sneed

When: November 2, 2016- January 14, 2017
Where: Memorial Student Center (MSC) Reynolds Art Gallery

Event Description: The Memorial Student Center Visual Arts Committee is proud to present Photographs in the Wilderness by Lloyd Sneed.  Sneed’s series of photographs explores nature in depth and takes viewers on a journey through the lens of a camera. The images capture the many facets of nature in profound clarity. From rising mountains in morning mist to vibrant green moss growing on a backdrop of grey rock, each image creates a moment between the viewer and the subject that is beyond that of a regular photograph. Photographs in the Wilderness incorporates a variety of landscapes and natural subjects to inspire an appreciation of the world around us.

About Lloyd Sneed: Loyd Sneed received his first camera when he was 12 years old and his passion for photography only grew from that point. He received formal training in fine-art photography at Sam Houston State University. After graduating from Sam Houston State in 1975, he went on to receive his doctorate in veterinary microbiology from Texas A&M University in 1985. Sneed’s long career in science can be seen in his analytical approach to photography. His ability to find order in the chaos of the wilderness is the foundation of this exhibit and a part of what makes his pieces so breathtaking.

Opening Reception: An opening reception will take place November 3, 2016, from 7pm to 9pm in the Reynolds Gallery. Receptions are open to the public and admission is free.

Hours and Location: The Reynolds Gallery is located on the second floor of the Memorial Student Center. It is open to the public Tuesday-Friday from 9am to 8pm, and Saturday-Sunday from 12pm to 6pm. Admission is free.
