BRADFORD, Pa. – Figurative pieces, documentary work and miniature objects by photographer Ward Roe will be featured in an art exhibition starting Jan. 30 at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

The People, Places, Things: Photography Exhibition, showcased through Feb. 27 at the KOA Art Gallery in Blaisdell Hall, is a part of the University’s Spectrum Series.

The exhibition will open with a talk by Roe from noon to 12:30 p.m. in the Webb/Bradford Forest Rehearsal Hall in Blaisdell Hall. A reception will follow in the KOA Speer Electronics Lobby in Blaisdell Hall.
More than 40 photographs in the exhibit will feature landscapes, iconography, pop culture and the human figure. “These photographic works reveal not only a broad and diverse range of subject matters, but also the moments lost in time,” said Kong Ho, associate professor of art at Pitt-Bradford.

“Most of his black-and-white photographs shown in this exhibition carry a sense of uneasy feeling with sad comedic implication.”
Ward described his work in his artist’s statement: “Some of the pictures are quirky, atypical viewpoints or banal subjects photographed in ways that alter their context.

In some cases these are downright funny. Other pictures are sadly poetic and tinged with melancholy.”
An art professor at Keystone College in La Plume, Roe earned a bachelor of fine arts degree from Binghamton University and a master of fine arts degree from Marywood University. His work has appeared in The Photo Review, an international quarterly journal.

KOA Art Gallery is open from 8:30 a.m. until 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 8:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. Fridays. The art gallery is closed Saturdays and Sundays.
