The first exhibition for the fall season in the Baer Gallery of St. Norbert College's Bush Art Center will be 'Evan Siegle: Still Moments/Peak Action," beginning on August 28 and running through September 30. Admission is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The exhibit will include a variety of Siegle's photos from the Green Bay Packers Superbowl XLV victory over Pittsburgh, as well as his high school varsity photos.

Siegle has been a staff photographer at the Green Bay Press-Gazette since 2002. His duties include shooting photos for all sections of the paper, covering the Green Bay Packers and producing multimedia pieces.

Among Siegle's career highlights have been shooting Super Bowl XLV, the 2006 Torino Winter Olympic Games in Italy (as part of the USA Today/Gannett photo staff), the NCAA Div. I & III Frozen Four hockey championships, a season- long photo documentary on the Green Bay West football team called the "Gridiron Gang," and an international documentary called "Seeking a New Life" from Victoria de Cortazar in Mexico.

Siegle graduated in 1997 from Clarke College in Dubuque, IA, with a B.A. in communications. His first job was at Southern Lakes Media from 1997-1999. He also worked at the Beloit Daily News from 1999-2002.

On Friday, Sept. 9 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Baer Gallery, the public will have a chance to meet with the artist and view his photos.
