Colomaio Photo Exhibit in Library

The Hinkle Memorial Library on the Alfred State campus will host a photo exhibit by faculty member Michael Colomaio, a lecturer in the Social and Behavioral Sciences Department at the college, through March 25. A photographer’s reception will be held Thursday, March 1, from 4-6 p.m. All are welcome.

The exhibit is titled “Mise Eire” (I Am Ireland), from the title of a poem by Patrick Henry Pearse, leader of the Easter Rebellion of 1916, and boasts more than 50 color landscape photographs.

The photos in the exhibit were taken during the artist’s “three trips to Ireland: 2008 with Alfred State Alumni, 2010 with family and friends, and 2011 with close friends Brian and Marlee Cannon from Wellsville. Many show the wilder west coast area with the rugged mountains and rocky coast line.”

The exhibit may be viewed during normal Library hours: Monday-Thursday, 7:30 a.m.-11 p.m.; Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Saturday, 1 – 7 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 – 11 p.m.
