Artist to talk photography at BRIC Tuesday

Dr. Catherine Zurmoskis will present “Photography in the Everyday: The Lives of Images,” an illustrated talk presented by Capital City Arts Initiative’s Nevada Neighbors series, at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Business Resource Innovation Center, 108 E. Proctor St.

Zurmoskis, an associate professor of art and art history at the University of New Mexico, believes personal photographs are significant to the way the individual understands his or her personal relation and place in society. Her presentation will examine the language of everyday photographs, including everyday snapshots, and what they mean in a broader social context.

Zurmoskis is the author of “Snapshot Photography: The Lives of Images.” She’s scheduled to giver her talk to arts students and faculty at Douglas High School and Sierra Nevada College.

An informal reception will preceed the event at 6:15 p.m. The reception and presentation are free.
