UCO PHOTOGRAPHY STUDENT ILLUSTRATES ‘THE DEATH OF TRUE LOVE’ IN NEW EXHIBIT

University of Central Oklahoma’s Woody Gaddis Gallery will feature the work of Central photography student Howard Mapson, a senior photographic arts student from Wagoner, through Feb. 7.

Mapson’s series, “The Death of True Love,” critiques societal pressure to marry at a young age. Concerned that his peers focus on the milestone of marriage rather than healthy relationships, Mapson’s series illustrates marriage as a facade of happiness rife with emotional distance.

The Woody Gaddis Gallery is located in Room 104 of the Communications Building on Central’s campus. Admission is free and open to the public from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday-Friday.

The gallery features new exhibitions on a monthly basis. To learn more about this exhibit and upcoming events, visit www.facebook.com/ucophoto.
