Work by photographer on display at University of Findlay
A collection of work by Mat Marrash will be on display through Friday, Aug. 5, at The University of Findlay’s Lea Gallery, located inside the Virginia B. Gardner Fine Arts Pavilion. The gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
A digital and film photographer, Marrash focuses on historical and artistic aspects of photography. His knowledge base ranges from exposure to self-processing and fine printing. Currently, he is focusing on work using an antique, large-format, 8×10 camera.
Marrash has been part of and won several awards at many juried exhibitions including Lima Art Space Photo Club Exhibits, Findlay Art League, Hancock in the Parks Photo Contest, Wassenberg Art Center Annual Photo Exhibit and the FAVA Biennial Six States Photography Show.
Originally from Fairfield, Conn., Marrash is a recent Findlay graduate. He was the 2009 recipient of the dean of the College of Liberal Arts’ award for academic achievement. His goal is to explore the entire history of photographic technique in order to apply his experiences to the technologies of digital photography.
