Photographer George Bedell explains that through his artwork

The work of CSM faculty member and photographer George Bedell, “The Wastelands: Photographs by George Bedell,” is on exhibit in CSM’s Tony Hungerford Memorial Art Gallery located in the Fine Arts Center on the La Plata Campus through Nov. 14.

Bedell will discuss his work during a Meet the Artist event, sponsored in part by Ann Marie Burmeister as part of the 40th anniversary of the CSM Foundation, beginning at 6:30 p.m., Nov. 4 at the Tony Hungerford Memorial Art Gallery.

In a recent gallery talk with students, Bedell explained that he most identifies with landscape photography and that he enjoys “telling a story about a place.” Bedell developed this collection of photographs by capturing the innate conflict between natural landscapes and land development.

Tickets for the Meet the Artist reception are $20 for the general public and $10 for CSM faculty and students. Ticket holders will be automatically eligible for a drawing of one of his pieces. Proceeds benefit CSM's arts fund. To see more of Bedell’s photographs visit
