Clarksville, Ark. ---Texas photographer Carroll H. Rowbotham will feature his black and white exhibit entitled, "The Awe and Beauty of the West," during the month of September in the Stephens Art Gallery on the University of the Ozarks campus.
The 36 photographs were taken over a period of two years (2000-2001) and represent a study of landscapes, small villages and historical churches in Northern New Mexico, as well as stunning images captured in Yellowstone National Park and the Badlands of South Dakota. All of the images were taken with a 35mm Nikon with a Nikkor lens. Rowbotham, who describes himself as a serious amateur photographer, has displayed his photographs at several venues, including the Irving (Texas) Fine Arts Center and the Grapevine Palace Theater. A native of Arkansas, Rowbotham also makes sculptures and works in the medium of metal and Portland cement. The exhibit will be available for public viewing from Sept. 1-30. There will be a Meet-the-Artist Reception for Rowbotham from 2-4 p.m., Sept. 21, in the gallery, which is located in the Walton Fine Arts Center on the north side of campus.
