Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park

Peninsula, Ohio (Wednesday, February 22, 2012) - The Cuyahoga Valley Photographic Society (CVPS) embarked on a year-long endeavor to document life on the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail through the lens of a photographer. The project has produced a visual record of the Towpath Trail that displays the seasonal diversity experienced throughout Northeast Ohio.

The exhibition entitled "Life on the Towpath" will open from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 11 and run through Friday, April 27 at the John F. Seiberling Gallery, located at 1403 W. Hines Hill Rd., within the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park offices in Peninsula.

Photographs on display will be from the spring and summer seasons. An exhibit comprised of images from fall and winter was displayed prior to the current exhibit.

"As a new season approaches, people will enjoy viewing all the images captured in the spring and summer," Conservancy CEO Deb Yandala said. "We will be displaying many vibrant images of the Towpath during the time of year that is brimming with life and activity."

The exhibit is free and open to the public. The gallery is open Mondays through Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Weekend viewings can be set up by appointment.
