--Lecture is sponsored by Friends of the Cheng Library at William Paterson University and the University Galleries

The photography of acclaimed New Jersey photographer George Tice, whose works are currently on view in the William Paterson University Galleries in an exhibition celebrating Tice’s 75th birthday and 60 years in photography, will be explored from a variety of perspectives during a panel discussion on Sunday, November 10, 2013. The program will begin at 2 p.m. in the University Galleries in the Ben Shahn Center for the Visual Arts on the campus in Wayne. Admission is free.  The program is co-sponsored by the University’s Friends of the Cheng Library and the University Galleries.

The program, titled “Without Adornment: Perspectives on the Photography of George Tice,” will feature three panelists who will share their views on Tice’s work:  Mary Kate O’Hare, former curator of American art at the Newark Museum, where the exhibit titled Seeing Beyond the Moment: The Photographic Legacy and Gifts of George Tice celebrates Tice’s career as a photographer, master printer, teacher, and contributor to the museum’s photographic collection; David Godine, founder and president of David R. Godine, Inc., a small, independent publishing house that has published three books of Tice’s photographs; and Stephen Hahn, associate provost and professor of English at William Paterson University, and author of a study on Tice’s photography and William Carlos Williams’ poetry.

The University Galleries exhibition, Without Adornment: Photographs by George Tice, on view through December 13, 2013, includes gelatin silver prints from Tice’s early Paterson series (1967-1971), as well as a selection of platinum/palladium prints. Among the works included in the exhibition are Tice’s iconic photographs of Paterson’s Great Falls and Garret Mountain, numerous Paterson street scenes, and images from other New Jersey locations including Jersey City, Rahway, and Newark, as well as from less common photographs from Maine, Indiana, and Colorado.
