Library Photo Exhibit Features "Captured Moments"OGDEN, Utah – An extensive photographic exhibit by Gregory Stauffer, celebrating Canyonlands and images of the Southwest, will be on display in Weber State University's Stewart Library from September 5-29. The exhibit is free to the public.
Stauffer's framed exhibit, "Captured Moments," includes 47 vivid scenes from locations both famous and obscure, ranging from the much-filmed Mittens in Monument Valley to Canyon X, a small slot canyon near Page, Arizona. National monuments such as the Grand Staircase Escalante, Natural Bridges, Cedar Breaks, Arches, Great Basin, Grand Canyon and Zion are also included, as well as Turkey Pen Ruins, Horshoe Bend and the Grand Gulch Primitive Area.
"Photography allows me to capture the details of moments in nature that casual observers – too busy in their passing through – simply never got to appreciate," Stauffer said. "Moreover, photography affords me the extreme luxury of reliving through memory the most significant and highest quality of my life's experiences – those moments spent in the outdoors, either alone or with the best of friends."
Stauffer is vice president for administrative and financial services at Southern Utah University and has shown photographic exhibits in museums and galleries in the Midwest and Southwest. Photographs in the "Captured Moments" display have toured Utah for the past year. A contemporaneous exhibit of Stauffer's Mexican scenes will hang in Southern Utah University's campus library during September.
The Stewart Library exhibit begins in the first floor atrium and ends in Special Collections on the second floor. Special Collections hours in September are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays except Tuesday; 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday; and noon until 5 p.m. on Saturday.
