LEBANON, Tenn. – Adams Gallery at Cumberland University opens 2010 with an exhibit of western landscapes by Lebanon photographer Rick Tomlinson. The show of color photographs opens January 12 and closes February 11. A reception will be held for the artist January 26 from 5-7 p.m., and Tomlinson will discuss his work in a gallery talk at 6 p.m.
Tomlinson, a self-taught photographer, travels each year to the Southwest of the United States, coming home with a collection of images of the dramatic landscapes seen there. The photographs on display in Lebanon show scenes from California, New Mexico, Colorado and Arizona.
“Through these images I hope to convey a glimpse of the beauty and mystery of the area and the unique quality of light that can be found there,” writes Tomlinson.
The photographs in this collection were captured using large and medium format cameras and digital single lens reflex cameras. They are printed on Fuji Crystal Archive, a material considered the highest quality in the industry for color printing. 
Exhibits in Adams Gallery are free and open to the public and accessible for all. Adams Gallery is open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday and is located in the June & Bill Heydel Fine Arts Center. For questions please call 615/547-1364.
Cumberland University would like to acknowledge The Thackston Family Foundation, Tennessee Arts Commission and Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee for their support in this endeavor and their ongoing assistance for CU and the School of Music and Fine Arts.
