Morrisville State College Student Exhibits Photography in Student Art Show

MORRISVILLE, NY—Ashley Bolsei’s art work in Morrisville State College’s student art show does more than tout her photographic talent. It bestows her passion for thoroughbred racing.

The LeRoy, N.Y. resident is among Morrisville State College students exhibiting work in a student art show on campus. The exhibit, which is free and open to the public, runs Nov. 5 through 25 in the Donald G. Butcher Library. It can be viewed during library hours. An open reception will be held Nov. 9 from 3 to 4:30 p.m.

Bolsei, 20, a third-year student in Morrisville State College’s Equine Science bachelor degree program, studying thoroughbred racing, has submitted three photographs related to thoroughbred racing.

“Photography has been more of a hobby than anything for the most part,” she said. “However, in the last year, I’ve thought about going into it as a career in the future.”

New equipment has helped in her quest.

“With a better, higher class camera I recently upgraded to, I’ve been able to step it up a level with my photographs and capture some amazing racing and equine photos in general,” she said.

Morrisville State College library hours are Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. to midnight, Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p m., Saturday 12 to 6 p.m., and Sunday 1 to 10 p.m.
