The University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast Library welcomes two new exhibits on the Gulf Park campus in Long Beach. The new exhibits feature landscape photography by daughter Rosemary Rowe and her father Bryan Rowe, as well as the exhibit, “Map and Geographical Imagery in Editorial Cartoons of the 1960-1970s.”

With both photographic exhibits on display through mid-February, Rosemary’s photography features images of the southwest United States and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Bryan’s exhibit, titled “Landscapes from My Early Years,” features works from 1976 and 1977. An artists’ reception honoring both photographers will be held Thursday, Jan. 23, at 4 p.m. in room 204 of the library.

Rosemary, who received a bachelor’s degree in geography in 2010 from Southern Miss Gulf Coast, traveled on three geography expeditions to the southwest United States as a university student. During these trips, she photographed her first collection of landscapes. Inspired by the beauty of the American Southwest, she says, “I found the only way I could express my feelings of this loneliness and ruggedness was through the camera lens.”
