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.

"My Child Life degree from Utica College has prepared me well for my career as a Child Life Specialist. Not only did I get a thorough background in child growth and development, I was also prepared through classes and a range of fieldwork assignments. I remember how exciting it was to actually relate theory into practice." "My Child Life degree from Utica College has prepared me well for my career as a Child Life Specialist. Not only did I get a thorough background in child growth and development, I was also prepared through classes such as Anatomy and Physiology and Medicines and Pediatrics, which has been a great asset in working in a health care profession. Fieldwork hours with both healthy and hospitalized children including a wide range of ages and abilities were an invaluable experience. I remember how exciting it was during my internship when I was able to actually relate theory into practice."
