Photography by UWF Professor Wade Jeffrey
Beginning January 21, 2014 Gallery 88 will host the exhibit Extremophiles: photography by UWF Professor Wade Jeffrey. Jeffrey explains that an extremophile is an organism that thrives in physically or geochemically unusual conditions, inhospitable to most life on earth.
In his field research travel to some of the coldest and driest places on earth - Antarctica, the Arctic Ocean and the Atacama Desert of Chile - he was attracted to record in photographs "some of the beauty, serenity, harshness and fragility of these environments."
Jeffrey will share these sights and insights with us at Gallery 88 from January 21 - February 21, 2014.
A closing reception is scheduled for Thursday, February 20th from 5pm to 7pm at the WUWF Studios, building 88 on the UWF campus.
