Lycoming College will host "THERE AND BACK" by artist Andrew Stanbridge from March 31 to April 30 in the Digital Media Gallery of the Mass Communications Building.

Stanbridge will hold a free lecture in the College's Fine Arts Lecture Hall from 2-3 p.m. on Thursday, March 31, followed by a gallery opening and reception from 4-5:30 p.m. While the lecture and gallery opening are open to the public, additional viewings are by appointment only.

Stanbridge has been photographing beaten and unbeaten streets, dirt roads and superhighways in Asia for the past 12 years. Published and exhibited internationally in a straight photojournalist form, his work has addressed issues including westernization, post-conflict rehabilitation, the sex industry and environmental tragedies. He often redresses his more arcane imagery with various inks, stickers and other items he collects along the way.

For his exhibition at Lycoming College, Stanbridge will be showing digital prints of bombs, shamans and temple paintings, amongst other things. There will also be a two-channel, psychedelic bomb explosion video sequence displayed along with the two-dimensional work.

Stanbridge earned his Master of Fine Arts from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts/Tufts University in Boston, Mass. He was awarded the prestigious Fulbright Research Fellowship to continue his photographic work in Thailand and has been the recipient of numerous grants.
