<p> The Louisiana State University at Alexandria Gallery announces the opening reception of a photography exhibit entitled "Shape, Form and Motion," on Friday, September 5, 1997 from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. This is a joint exhibition of monochrome fine art photography by Stephen Everett and Dr. Peter Milder. The show will be on display through October 4, 1997 in the University Gallery from 10 a.m until 2 p.m. </p><p> Stephen Everett is an attorney with a private practice in Alexandria. He was born and reared in Northwestern Louisiana. He has been involved with photography and darkroom work since the age of 12 and began to use it as a serious art form in 1987. </p><p> In his artist statement, Everett shares "I try to be attuned to all that is going on around and within me when I expose the negative. My photographs, therefore, many times do not render a literal depiction of the actual scene, but an abstract interpretation." </p><p> He combines serious photography with outdoor excursions for hiking, camping, hunting and fishing, and today limits his work to black and white landscapes and abstracts, and to color photographs of birds and flowers in their native environment</p><p>s.

Dr. Peter Milder is a family physician in Alexandria, having moved here three and a half years ago from Ontario, Canada. His interest in photography stems from teenage years. His photographic interests include landscape, architectural, portraiture and nudes. He shoots primarily in black and white, but has experimented with infrared film as well. </p><p> "I try to capture the interplay between subject and light," Milder says. "Viewing the image evokes an emotional response and appreciation of this interplay." </p><p> For more information on the exhibit, contact Roy deVille, gallery director at 473-6449. </p><p>
