Exhibit features 'Hands at Work'

An 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 them."

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 in Texas.

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 is available by contacting the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
