San Antonio (November 1, 2011) – Gallery 23 at The University of Texas at San Antonio’s University Center will host “Simultaneous Panoramas,” an exhibition of panoramas from UTSA alumnus Neal Cox. Free and open to the public, the exhibit runs November 14, 2011 through February 24, 2012.
“Simultaneous Panoramas” is a series of panoramic photographs created by the Extroverted and Introverted Simultaneous Panorama Cameras designed by Neal Cox . These cameras can capture 360 degrees of space surrounding or encompassed by the camera. Professor Cox describes his work as a combination of multiple processes, thoughts, and conclusions.
The idea for the creation of these cameras came from being consistently asked if Professor Cox had ever designed a camera that exposed all its images at the same time. “The answer was of course always no…” said Cox. “I decided that I should make a complex, multi aperture camera that would expose all of its images at once.”
Neal Cox is an assistant professor of art at Stephen F. Austin State University. He received his BFA and MFA in printmaking from Brigham Young University and The University of Texas at San Antonio, respectively.
An informational DVD on the cameras will play in Gallery 23 throughout the exhibit. An exhibit reception with Neal Cox will be held Monday, November 28 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. outside the Gallery.
