Outstanding Student Artwork Comes to Cook Library's Walls

subpagepic On Thursday, April 17th, Cook Library held a reception for Towson art student, George Civita, whose artwork is being exhibited in the fourth-floor lobby. George's displayed photography ranges from black-and-white pieces, finely capturing the play of light, to vibrant color studies of floral subjects. During the reception, the artist shared his thoughts on such topics as methods, equipment, and subject choice.

Originally from Ellicott City, MD, George plans to graduate next spring with a major in photography. He cites, as one of the several reasons that he loves photos, their power to inspire him to travel. After graduation, he would enjoy working as a freelance photographer, traveling internationally on shoots for some of the magazines he admires most like Time, National Geographic, or his personal favorite, Popular Science.

George's work came to Cook after Librarian Joyce Garczynski put out a call to Art department faculty to let them know that the library is interested in displaying student art. George heard of the opportunity and submitted his framed photos for consideration. "The library is the perfect place to display the exemplary artwork of Towson students because it gives the artists a chance to get some exposure for their work and it help to beautify the library by inspiring the creativity of all who visit," said Joyce. The library staff is hoping that George's work will be the first of many pieces to hang in Cook. Other students who are interested in submitting their work for consideration are welcome to contact Joyce Garczynski at

The exhibit will be on display in Cook Library through the remainder of the year. Please be sure to stop by and see his work!
