The University of Toledo will unveil a new three-artist exhibit in the Center for the Visual Arts Gallery beginning Tuesday.

In its second iteration, Where Light Goes “deepens its exploration of contemporary approaches to the photographic image through the examination of its physical properties, the possibilities of its reproduction, its vulnerability, and its uncertainty as an instrument of truth,” according to the gallery.

The exhibit will be on display in the main gallery of the UT Center for the Visual Arts, 620 Art Museum Drive, through Feb. 16. From 6 to 7 p.m. Feb. 2, Robin Reisenfeld, curator of works on paper for the Toledo Museum of Art, will moderate a panel discussion featuring the exhibit’s artists, Trisha Holt, Ben Schonberger, Eric Zeigler, and Gallery Director Brian Carpenter. The discussion will be held in the Toledo Museum of Art Little Theater.

The discussion will be followed by a reception in the CVA from 7 to 9 p.m. The exhibit, the panel discussion, and the reception are all free.
