Someone to Ride the River With

A Survey of MFA photography students from the University of Arizona, Arizona State University, and the University of New Mexico

February 1st- 17th, 2017
Reception: February 3, 2017 6pm- 8pm

“Someone to ride the river with,” a saying used in the Western United States during the late 1800s, referred to a person who could be counted on, someone who was reliable. In the spirit of this adage, MFA photography students in the Southwest are banding together to form a network through which they can provide support and help one another to navigate the uncertain waters of academia and the art world. This exhibition showcases work from current graduate students in the photo programs at three major universities in the Southwest. Opening at the Lionel Rombach Gallery in Tuscon, AZ, in conjunction with the Society for Photographic Education’s Southwest and West joint regional conference, the show was on display at the Harry Wood Gallery in Tempe, AZ and be on display from November 21st – December 2nd before closing at the Center for Fine Arts Downtown Studio in Albuquerque, NM from February 1st – 17th.

Musicology Colloquium Series

This talk will examine the first zarzuela ever written, El laurel de Apolo (1658), by Calderón de la Barca. Though largely ignored by musicologists due to its lack of surviving music, Dr. Quinn will show that a focus on its soundscape reveals a critique of the governance of the Hapsburg Empire.
