EXHIBITS

Jeffrey Favero Fine Art Photography
Throughout the Stewart Library (August 2014 - December 2014)

Jeffrey Favero is a retired dentist from Ogden, Utah.  Favero says, "For me, the art of photography is more about the Giver than the taker.  A visual synergy of divine gift, serendipity and a splash of creativity."  Favero's images can be viewed on all three levels of the library and in the Hetzel-Hoellein room.  Go online to see more of his work at www.jeffreyfaverophotography.com

Photographs by Kevin Mikkelsen

Stewart Library, Middle Level (Ongoing)

Kevin Mikkelsen resides in North Ogden, Utah right at the base of the Wasatch Range. “Besides being a beautiful place to live, North Ogden is the perfect jumping off point in which to reach one of 7 National Parks, all within a 5 hour drive time. As time passes, and new things are seen, more miles are traveled, and more mountains climbed, that love progressively deepens and has become an inspiration in his photographic work. Capturing images through today’s digital and film technology has allowed Kevin to express that inspiration in the form of scenic landscapes and wildlife fine art prints.” We are pleased to have the opportunity to show 13 of Kevin’s beautiful images in the library, his complete works may be viewed by going to: PhotographyOutdoors.com
