The Nature of Stillness

lag-stillness “The Nature of Stillness” a photography exhibit featuring works by Ruth Hoyt and Roel Guerra is on display now through Friday, May 11, 2012 at South Texas College’s Pecan Campus Library. The exhibit will be on view on the first and second floors of the library, which is located at 3201 W. Pecan Blvd. in McAllen. Admission is free and open to the public.

“This diverse collection of photographs lets the viewer take a walk outside and witness the spectacular beauty that surrounds us in the Rio Grande Valley,” said Dawn Haughey, STC Library Art Gallery associate. “Hoyt and Guerra present skillfully captured images of wildlife, landscapes and architecture that burst with vibrant color and dramatic shadows.”

Hoyt is a naturalist and full-time photographer who enjoys spending time outdoors. She lives on a South Texas ranch where she photographs, writes, leads workshops and tours, teaches nature and digital photography and makes public speaking appearances. Her work has been shown at the Smithsonian Institute and has appeared in publications for National Geographic, The Nature Conservancy and The Valley Land Fund, to name a few.

Guerra specializes in photographing subjects found in South Texas and Mexico. His subjects range from ancient rustic architecture to dusty valley landscapes. Since purchasing his first camera in the late 1970s, he has spent all of his free time learning as much as possible about the art of photography. Guerra especially enjoys the dramatic effect his photographs achieve when using an infrared Fuji camera. He currently runs a successful photo studio.

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