STC-logoMcALLEN – The South Texas College Visual Arts Program at 3201 W. Pecan Blvd. is hosting Sharon Lee Hart’s “Sanctuary” photo exhibit which just opened and is running through April 10 at the Visual Arts gallery in Building B, Room 103. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Dr. Janine Israel, assistant professor of psychology, will lead a discussion on “The Impact of Animal Presence on the Human Psyche and Soul” on March 25 at 11:30 a.m. at the Pecan Campus.

An artist talk will be held on April 1 at 6 p.m. at the STC Mid-Valley Campus Library, 400 N. Border in Weslaco, and on April 3 at 11:30 a.m. at the Pecan Campus. Finally, a reception will be held on April 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Pecan Campus Art Gallery.

The exhibit and events are free and open to the public.

“Sanctuary” is a collection of 40 black and white images of animals living out their lives in various farm sanctuaries. Hart’s work in the Farm Animal Sanctuary Project investigates the relationship between humans and other animals, and how animals exist as unique beings with emotions and characteristics as diverse as any human.

Hart, an assistant professor of art at Florida Atlantic University, traveled across the U.S. and photographed the animal residents at 10 farm animal sanctuaries that are dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and lifelong care of abused and neglected farm animals.

The final products are black and white photographs that emphasize a sense of tradition to keep the focus on each animal’s expression.
