Angelina College exhibiting works of Nacogdoches photographer

Posted by Paige Stewart - email

Lufkin, TX-(KTRE)-Nacogdoches photographer Kay Humphreys will present "Latitude 59:Photographs by Kay Humphreys" in a gallery scheduled to open Tuesday, March 2nd in the Angelina Center for the Arts Gallery on the Angelina College campus.

The exhibition will be on display through March 31st.

Combining her love of nature with her passion for art, the exhibit will offer selected images Humphreys captured during the last four summers she spent in Alaska on the Katmai coast. Humphreys has spent the last several years traveling and working in Alaska, where she has moved among the wildlife and documented their lives and habitat.

Of her time in Alaska, Humphreys said, "This is a special place for bears; this is a place where bears can be bears without being hunted; this is a place where humans can appreciate a glimpse into the lives and behaviors of the coastal brown bears of the Katmai coast. "

The stunning landscape of Alaska and the wild creatures inhabiting it will be shown in large-scale prints in this exhibition.

Ms. Humphreys is a 1979 graduate of Stephen F. Austin University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a minor in Art.

There will be a public reception for the artist on March 2 from 6 to 7:30 PM in the Angelina College Gallery. This event is free and open to the public.
