University of Cincinnati photojournalist Colleen Kelley will be exhibiting a collection of images she captured in Alaska last summer.
The exhibit will be held in the 840 Gallery, located on the 4th floor of the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning from Nov. 12-16. The gallery will be open from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
The photographs are the result of a summer expedition to Alaska, covering the Glacial Field Methods course taught by UC geology professor Thomas V. Lowell. From August 9-18, Kelley shadowed the students and faculty from icy peak to icy peak, capturing the natural aesthetics of the state, as well as the group's diligent research efforts.
According to Kelley, the trip was very strenuous. With heavy camera equipment on her back, she hiked 8-14 hours each day with the group.

A closing reception is scheduled in the 840 Gallery Friday, Nov. 16 from 4:30 to 7 p.m.
Kelley is an alumna of the college and currently a staff member of UC Photographic Services.
