Wildlife Photography

lag-wildlife South Texas College’s Pecan Campus Library proudly presents its newly acquired collection of wildlife photography. This large-scale photo display will be unveiled before the library open house events on Thursday, April 18 at 10:30 a.m. in the library foyer. The STC Pecan Campus Library is located at 3201 W. Pecan Blvd. in McAllen. Admission is free and open to the public.

The Library Art Gallery’s permanent installation of local wildlife photography features bright and vivid images taken right here in the Rio Grande Valley by photographers Steve Bentsen, Kaitlyn Ciomperlik, Dennis Erhart, Cody Gregg, Ruth Hoyt, Seth Patterson, James Nabours, Rolf Nussbaumer, John Pickles, and Daniela Setien.

Smaller scale photos have been installed in the information commons room in the new West Academic Building, while larger photos will grace the walls of the library foyer.

“We’re very proud to be able to display these photos as a permanent exhibit at STC’s library,” said Cody Gregg, STC director of instructional technologies. “Many people are unaware of the incredible diversity of wildlife in the Rio Grande Valley. These photos highlight the beauty of our wildlife and the works of talented photographers.”

STC’s Library Art Gallery exhibits regional, national and international artwork, explores new visions and theories of creativity, and introduces innovative artistic expressions to the South Texas region.
