Western Nevada Community College is hosting a reception for Chris Ryan and Jayna Conkey at the College Gallery on Wednesday, March 9, 4:30-6:30 p.m. Conkey's and Ryan's series of photographs, "Images from the Pacific Rim," will be displayed in the gallery March 7-April 1.
Last summer Conkey and Ryan, both WNCC instructors, visited 11 ports along the Pacific Rim as part of a National Geographic Society program that educates K-12 teachers in geographic sciences. On the voyage, Ryan taught physical and human geography to 13 K-12 teachers from throughout the United States. Conkey took photographs at each port that are compiled on a CD which has been distributed to Nevada teachers. The CD has images from the United States, Russia, Korea, China, Vietnam, Taiwan and Japan, including volcanoes, people, landscapes and religious icons. Conkey also taught a Photoshop class for the participants.
The College Gallery is in the Bristlecone Building at WNCC Carson City, 2201 West College Parkway. For more information, call 445-3000.
