Photographer Ardie Tacuara stands next to one panel of her exhibited photography.
A photography display has been set up on the third floor of Waggoner Library. It showcases the talent of Ardeth “Ardie” Tacuara, environmental services supervisor at Trevecca. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Viewing hours are Monday-Thursday, 8:00 A.M. till 10:00 P.M.; Friday, 8:00 A.M. till 6:00 P.M.; Saturday, 10:00 A.M. till 5:00 P.M.; and Sunday, 2:00 P.M. till 5:00 P.M. The display will remain in its current location until Thanksgiving, at which time the prints will be for sale through Ardie.
    Ardie has had an interest in photography since she was a child.
    “I remember being about 9 or 10 years of age and my father putting a camera in my hand and saying I was in charge of taking the pictures of our family vacation,” Ardie recalls.
    Ardie has a long history with Trevecca. Her dad came to school here at Trevecca in 1948. At that time, her mom ran a restaurant that sat at the bottom of the hill.
    Dr. Hardy, president of Trevecca from 1915-1919 and 1928-1936, delivered Ardie when his medical clinic located near the campus.
    Ardie has spent time away from Trevecca but eagerly returned to the familiar ground for employment five years ago.
