Nature Artist to Display Work in WWU Exhibit

Bob Colvin’s travels come to life in his art exhibit, Wildlife-Nature-Travel, on display through Feb. 29 in the Mildred Cox Gallery of the Gladys Woods Kemper Center for the Arts at William Woods University.


Colvin, a Jefferson City native, first began taking pictures as a way to document where he was and what he was doing. After a trip to Yellowstone National Park in the late 1980s, his hobby soon grew into more than a pastime when he realized his limitations with the equipment he was using.


Through self teaching, workshop training and local classes, he has since traveled the country and the world photographing images that capture his love of the outdoors and his passion for preserving our natural world.


Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 1-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free and open to the public. A reception and artist talk will take place Feb. 24, from 1-4 p.m.
