Furman University Undergraduate Evening Studies (UES) will host a photography exhibition Oct. 21-Dec. 1 in the Baiden Gallery of the Herring Center on the Furman campus. The Herring Center for Continuing Education is open 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The exhibition, Far Peripheral, is open to the public, and includes work by UES students and faculty. Sponsoring the show is Dixon Hughes Goodman, LLC.

The exhibition features selected images by students in Digital Photography, an art course recently added to the UES curriculum. Student works will be paired with images by instructor and show curator Bryan Hiott, a fine art photographer whose work has been exhibited internationally. Hiott earned his MFA from Parsons The New School for Design in New York City where he taught prior to joining the UES faculty.

Students in UES at Furman are typically working adults committed to earning their undergraduate bachelor’s degree. Required general education courses in the arts are designed to encourage creativity and individual vision within the program, giving students opportunities to engage in new learning experiences outside their major courses. Far Peripheral will showcase students’ strengths as image-makers who engage with subject matter and present the world in new and different ways.

The event gives the community an opportunity to visit the Herring Center, home to Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI), Corporate & Professional Development and Bridges to a Brighter Future, in addition to UES. In all, Furman’s Continuing Education Department serves more than 2,000 Upstate students annually.
