Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park

Peninsula, Ohio (Thursday, November 10, 2011) - 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, November 13 and run through Saturday, February 25 at the John F. Seiberling Gallery. The gallery is located at 1403 W. Hines Hill Road, peninsula 44264, within the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park offices.

"The Towpath Trail has been embraced by the Northeast Ohio community and beyond because it offers so many breathtaking sights," said Ed Toerek, president of the Cuyahoga Valley Photographic Society. "It was the perfect setting for a year-long contest that has resulted in an astounding collection of photos."

Photographs on display will be from the fall and winter seasons. An exhibit comprised of images from spring and summer will begin following the current exhibit.

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.

Cuyahoga Valley National Park's namesake river flows north and south. The Cuyahoga River begins its 100 mile journey in Geauga County, flows south to Cuyahoga Falls where it turns sharply north and flows through CVNP. American Indians referred to the U-shaped river as Cuyahoga or "crooked river."
