PULLMAN, Wash. – The fall 2011 art exhibit at the Washington State University Animal Health Library (AHL) will display photographs of the Palouse by research associate Debby Alperin.
 
The library is located on the first and lower floors of Wegner Hall; the entrance is Room 170. The photos will be on exhibit through late January. 
 
Alperin’s love affair with the region began more than 30 years ago when she moved to Pullman to attend WSU. She has worked at the university 26 years, mostly at the College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) but also briefly in the Department of Animal Sciences.
 
About the time Alperin arrived at WSU, she was given her first SLR camera and began taking photos. She carries a camera almost everywhere she goes.
 
She drives through the heart of the Palouse daily between WSU and her home in rural Viola, Idaho. Many of the photos in the exhibit are from that commute – taken at the times of day when the light is best. Alperin often returns to a spot several times, working out when the light and the sky are just right.
 
The AHL has hosted rotating art exhibits since spring 2009. Artists who work with animal themes and/or have a connection to the CVM are welcome to contact Steve Hines, shines@vetmed.wsu.edu, or Vicki Croft, croft@vetmed.wsu.edu about showing their work.
