February 20, 2012 – Robert Broghamer’s surrealism-styleoil-stained glass pieces and digital photography of local landmarks will be on display in an exhibition, titled “Around the Valley in HDR,” in the Widmann Gallery at King’s College from March 5-29.
A resident of Forty Fort, Broghamer is 1969 graduate of Kings College where his interest in photography as art began when he took a photography course from famed local artist/photographer Mark Cohen.
After working in stained glass surrealistic pieces, he now works primarily in High Dynamic Range (HDR) digital photography, which allows photographers to combine two or more images of the same scene - taken at different exposure levels – into one finished image.
Many of Broghamer’s works have been on display at the annual Wilkes-Barre Fine Arts Fiesta, where he received first place in crafts and second in photography last year.
Broghamer will discuss his work from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, March 16, in the Widmann Gallery, Sheehy-Farmer Campus Center, located between North Franklin and North Main streets. The exhibition is free and open to the public. Gallery hours:Mon. through Fri., 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.; Sat. and Sun., as arranged. The Gallery is closed on national holidays and during scheduled breaks throughout the academic year.
