This first full-scale exhibition of Arnold's art, "Charlie Arnold: The Love of the Visual," encompasses his earliest to his most recent work. A highly respected Rochester photographer, printmaker, and xerographic artist, Arnold has earned many national and international awards and accolades in his 50-plus-year career. His associations with the George Eastman House and as a professor at Rochester Institute of Technology spread his reputation widely as an innovator and exceptional teacher. His work can be found in museums and galleries throughout the world.

His 60 xerographic prints on display are presented with commentaries about his work, photographs and recollections by former students, and even an early Xerox machine on which he experimented and produced images.
