Jamie Bishop: A Retrospective, an exhibition of graphic designs and photographs by Jamie Bishop, the Virginia Tech German instructor who died on April 16, 2007, in Norris Hall, will be on display in Blacksburg starting April 15 through July 14.

The display will be shown at VTLS Inc. headquarters, located on 1701 Kraft Drive in Blacksburg. Viewing hours to the general public are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The works on display include sketches by Bishop from the early 1990s and his last photo cycle, South Main Series, made the year he died. Also on display are several graphic designs created by Bishop.

Bishop planned to earn a master of fine arts and to pursue a career in graphic design.
