Sonoma County residents Fay Gallus and Dr. Richard Sweet, whose collection is the subject of "Focus on Photography: Selections from the Gallus Sweet Collection," have generously agreed to share 59 photographs with the University Art Gallery. The selection of photographs span much of the history of photography, from Carleton Watkins' lyrical 1883 image "Multnomah Falls in Oregon" to Annie Leibovitz's powerful rendering of Niagara Falls in Canada. The exhibition also presents the work from artists including Ansel Adams, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Carrie Mae Weems, among many others.
