UC Bio Professor to Have Exhibit at Stanley Theatre
Opening Reception This Friday
Written By Colleen Bierstine '15, PR Intern
"Our own" Thomas McCarthy, associate professor of biology, mixes work with pleasure when he gets behind the camera
Utica, NY (02/18/2013)- Tom McCarthy is a man of many talents.
In addition to his “day job” as an associate professor of biology at Utica College, he is an avid photographer – so accomplished, in fact, that he’ll be showing off his photography skills with a photo exhibit at the Stanley Theatre in Utica.
When he’s not teaching or grading papers, McCarthy picks up the camera and captures images of what he finds interesting. Consequently, his photos often intermingle with biology, as can be seen in several of the exhibit’s photos with nature and insects as the subjects.
This is not McCarthy’s first exhibit; he had a solo exhibit at the Rome Art and Community center last year, and he did a variety of group shows with the Utica Camera Club since joining in 2008. McCarthy’s work was also in the N.Y. State Fair, the Sidewalk Art Show at Munson Williams Proctor Art Institute, and at the Stanley.
The opening reception for McCarthy’s exhibit will be held this Friday, Feb. 22 at 5 p.m. in the Upper South Wing Tolles Gallery at the Stanley Theatre, Utica. Daniele’s Banquet Specialists will provide refreshments. It is free and open to the public.
McCarthy’s exhibit will remain on display through April 1; it can be viewed Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
For more information on the exhibit, call
the Stanley at (315) 724-4000.

"I can honestly say, that I am a better person for having received my education from Utica College." "As a returning adult student, I felt the program was perfect. The class size was small allowing for individual attention when I needed it. I always felt known and accepted as an individual, not just a number among many. The professors were encouraging and helpful in many areas, not just academics. They took a personal interest in us as people, not just students. When I had a difficult time, my professors gave me the extra little push that I needed to continue. I can honestly say, that I am a better person for having received my education from Utica College. Today I teach high school mathematics and also a course at HCCC. The education I received at Utica College has prepared me well for my position teaching the higher math courses in high school. Returning to college to obtain my Bachelor Degree in mathematics was the one of the best decision I ever made. Choosing Utica College made that decision even better."
