The Varsity is pleased to exhibit of the work of Gregory Wendt, a photographer, filmmaker, director, artist and performer. Gregory’s career began in the New York film industry, but he later found himself in Southern Illinois, where he resides today.

He has taken many trips to Bavaria, Germany, and the nearby Alps, where the landscape has some striking similarities to the rolling hills of Southern Illinois. Photographs from these regions and more are featured in this exhibit.

An opening night reception will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13. Admission is free. The evening will also feature a selection of short films made in Southern Illinois and Bavaria. The exhibit will be up through Oct. 6 and can be viewed during events at The Varsity.
