TROY - The work of artist/photographer Libby Rowe is being featured in an exhibit at Troy University's Malone Gallery of Fine Arts.

Rowe's "Learning Feminine: Posture" will run Jan. 16 through Feb. 13, culminating with a lecture by the artist. The work was previously exhibited as a part of the 7th Feminist Research Conference in Utrecht, Netherlands.

Rowe, currently the head of the photography area at the University of Texas San Antonio, exhibits her photographs and mixed media objects and installations throughout the country, as well as internationally. Among her notable exhibitions are: the Grand Prix FotoFestival 2010 in Lodz, Poland; the Newspace Photo Center in Portland, Ore.; the Photo Center Northwest and Fotocircle Gallery in Seattle, Wash.; the Sol Mendick Gallery at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pa.; and, the Zone Gallery in Kansas City, Mo.

"We choose art that will benefit our students and teach them to look outside the textbook," said Greg Skaggs, Associate Professor of Art & Design.

Rowe received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Northern Iowa and her Master of Fine Arts from Syracuse University. She has taught photography and digital imaging for a number of different institutions including Oregon College of Art and Craft and Vanderbilt University.
