In the exhibition, "Stillwater: Photographs by William Wylie," the artist captures the timeless qualities of the changing flow patterns and light fluctuations on the Cache la Poudre River as it travels through Fort Collins, Colo.  The exhibition opens Aug. 24 and runs through Oct. 27 at the University of Virginia Art Museum. A reception, free for members, $3 for others, will be held Friday, Aug. 30, 5:30 ­ 7:30 p.m., in the museum. The reception is co-sponsored by the Artspace Committee of the University Program Council.

Wylie, assistant professor of art at U.Va., captures the experience of water with his camera. "The Poudre can be seen from highways, shopping malls, car lots, city parks and houses," said Wylie. "Yet, just beyond the willow shoots, close to the water¹s surface, the significance of place resonates."

The exhibition is presented in conjunction with the publication of "Stillwater," a limited edition book of Wylie's photographs of the river, published by Nazraeli Press.

Wylie will give a gallery talk and sign copies of his book at a reception on Sunday, Sept.  29, at 2 p.m. in the museum.

The exhibition and gallery talk are sponsored by The Hook, Tim and Virginia Michel and the Arts Enhancement Fund.

The University of Virginia Art Museum is open to the public without charge Tuesday through Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m. Limited parking is available for visitors behind the museum.
