BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—Photos from a Gardner-Webb University professor’s three-week railroad adventure across the United States are featured in an exhibit on display now through Feb. 8 on campus.

“Great American Rail Adventure” shares images of American life, captured by Dr. Bob Carey, professor and chair of the GWU Department of Communication & New Media. Carey traveled by train from Charlotte, N.C., to the West Coast and back home during February and March of last year.

The exhibit in GWU’s Tucker Student Center gallery will include a reception Jan. 14 from 4-5 p.m., followed by a lecture by Carey from 5-6 p.m. in Faith Hall of the student center.

Carey has taught photography and other communications subjects for nearly 20 years at Gardner-Webb. His photos have appeared in many publications, including the Washington Post, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the Dallas Times-Herald.
