"Visions from Alaska" Coming Soon

The majestic views of Alaska are widely known as some of the most breathtaking sights in the world. Unfortunately, many people never get the chance to experience them firsthand. Photographer Terry Boyd will present “Visions from Alaska,” an interactive 35mm slide photography presentation, on Thursday, April 15, 2009 at 6:30 p.m. in the UACCM Fine Arts Auditorium. Sponsored by the college, this exhibit is offered free and is open to members of the public of all ages.

Boyd, a self-taught photographer originally from Russellville, travels and photographs the United States with emphasis on Alaska. He spends several months each summer in Denali National Park and Preserve in Alaska and will be making an interactive visual presentation of images from his most recent trip. Locations featured in the presentation will include the Yukon, British Columbia, Badlands National Park and Arkansas in addition to Alaska. Boyd has dedicated his life to his work “living one roll of slide film at a time,” and doing his best to “be in the right place in the right light.” Boyd will embark on his eighth annual trip to Alaska in the summer.

Boyd will donate several pieces of art to be given away in a drawing and will also have a selection of matted 5X7 and 6X9 prints available for purchase at the event.
