features 'Hands at Work'
art exhibit featuring the working hands of craftsmen, mechanics
and artisans photographed by a former California State University,
Sacramento neuroscience and research professor will be on display
at the University Union Gallery through Oct. 25.
The photography of Miriam LeGare, who taught at CSUS from 1972 to
2001, captures the art of hands working in various professions such
as tattooing and bird binding for wild bird identification.
"I've always loved looking at hands," she says. "They
are great photo material. When I retired, I got serious about photographing
Photographing hands at work puts LeGare in unique places she wouldn't
normally find herself. She's traveled to ranches to photograph hands
shoeing horses, a Sacramento tattoo shop, and a military facility
Among LeGare's favorites are shots of specialized work such as glass
blowing, stenciling and jewelry making. The photos are matted, framed
and available for purchase.
University Union Gallery hours are from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.,
Monday - Friday, and 5 - 8 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday. More information
