For Like Panes of Glass, Rowe explores the memorial construct of the modern family as an ideal and a reality. The images, drawn from her family albums, represent the idealized mode of the perfect family. Framed by the shapes of domestic items, the images are positioned to conceal imperfections, manufacturing an ideal family unit. Rowe is interested in breaking from traditional presentation strategies to engage viewers in a more interactive experience with the role of the photographic image.

Libby Rowe received her BFA from the University of Northern Iowa and her MFA from Syracuse University. Rowe's photographic series, Inside/Out and the installation (sub)Division were recently exhibited together at United Photo Industries in Brooklyn, New York. These works were also exhibited with Dwellings and Like Panes of Glass at Morlan Gallery in Lexington, Kentucky. Rowe resides and works in San Antonio, Texas.

The Landmark Arts SRO Photo Gallery is located in the Sub-basement of the Texas Tech School of Art Building. The Art Building is located at 3010 18th Street (near the corner of 18th Street and Flint Ave).
