MU Student to Host Photography Exhibit

by Mansfield University - April 22, 2016

Mansfield University senior Emilee Andrews will be hosting a biographical photography exhibition on Saturday, April 30th from 5 to 8 p.m. at D’Vine Vineyard and Winery in Columbia Crossroads, PA.

The exhibit will feature a collection of images of seniors aged 70+ taken by Andrews throughout the semester, and they will be presented with the stories of the respective individuals. The event is entitled “Memoirs” and is designed to bring awareness to the importance and beauty of elderly lives. It will feature over 20 different people from local communities such as Ithaca, Corning, Elmira, Wellsboro, Mansfield, and Gillett, including WWII veteran Richard Rooman and wife of 74 years, Doris, who recently passed (see attached images).

“Emilee’s images are revealing and incredibly evocative,” said Michelle Schlegel, Mansfield University’s Art Department Chair. “The work she is doing is so important, and I can’t think of a person more sensitive and thoughtful to walk this journey.”

Admission to the program is free and will include jazz music for entertainment, a dessert reception by Hall’s Candies, and a cake cutting at 6 p.m. All are welcome to attend.

The Mansfield Foundation provided a grant to help fund the event in collaboration with Graphic Solutions. “I’m so thankful for their sponsorship,” said Andrews. “This has been one of the most enriching and inspiring projects that I’ve ever done, but it would not have been possible without their help.”
