The works of photographer Suzanne Asaturian will be featured in a new
exhibit at the Varsity, downtown Carbondale. “An Hour in the Day” opens Friday, Oct. 7. The
Varsity will host a public reception for the artist from 5 to 7 p.m. on that day.
Asaturian began her artistic endeavors after 35 years as a teacher in Carbondale.
“As a retired science teacher, my passion for understanding the natural world is magnified
through my lens,” Asaturian said. “Capturing a tiny beetle with a macro lens or a Great White
Egret brought closer with a zoom lens ignites joy for the extra time I’m able to spend outside
gaining deeper scientific insight.”
The digital photography exhibit showcases the beauty of the ordinary from hikes, kayak paddles
or quiet moments in the artist’s backyard. “Featured are a few of my favorites of God’s creations
from early in the morning, throughout the day and into the night,” Asaturian said.
“An Hour in the Day” will be available for viewing when the Varsity is open for events or by
special arrangement. To make appointments, please contact the Varsity at
The Varsity is downtown Carbondale at 418 S. Illinois Ave. For more information go to
