The photos were hung in the gallery with care in the hopes the community soon would be there. The Brown Store, 225 South Summit Street, is hosting the Cowley College digital photography gallery opening on Dec. 11 at 6 p.m. The exhibition varies from portraits to landscapes and sunsets to still life. The images on display are as unique as the composition of the class.

"The digital photography class is made up of about half traditional students and half community members. It is a great way for the campus to connect with the community," said digital photography instructor, Meg Smith.

The class is designed for the tinkerer, the hobbyist and the aspiring journalist and covers areas such as perspective, motion and rule of thirds.

"I have students in the class who are here to improve their scrap booking skills and others who would like pursue a degree in photography,” said Smith.

The digital photography gallery opening is an opportunity for students to showcase their skills in a public setting free and open to the community. 

"I am really proud of how hard these students have worked to perfect their skills both taking the pictures and learning the editing software to manipulate them," said Smith. "I really appreciate Kim's (Ebert) offer to showcase them in her unique venue."

Kim Ebert, co-owner of the Brown Store offered to provide the venue and has been instrumental in putting the show together, according to Smith. This is not the first time Ebert has hosted the event, she has offered her space in years past and often hosts campus events including the Open Mic Night which showcases the talents of campus poets, musicians and writers.

The opening will be followed by a free Temporal Mechanics Union concert at Cowley College’s Robert Brown Theatre starting at 7:30 p.m.
