Creativity on display during student works reception


receptionWith writing portfolios, photographic works and communications video projects on display, the Life Through Words and Lens student works reception was held Thursday in Cowley College’s Earle N. Wright Community Room.

The work was done by students in Meg Smith’s Digital Photography class, Marlys Cervantes’ Poetry and Creative Writing courses, and Adam Borth’s Public Relations and Communication Practicum classes.

“The students did a fantastic job of pulling so many creative pieces together,” Smith said.

MOSAIC in Winfield provided gourmet coffee from Jumpy Monkey during the reception. While, students in the digital photography class sold more than $500 worth of images.

At the end of the reception, members of the Temporal Mechanics Union led individuals from the Wright Room to the Brown Theatre for the group’s performance of “Movie Night”, which featured new scores for a number of classic silent movies from the very earliest era of film, as well as pieces inspired by more recent movies.

“We’re very happy to have teamed up with the creative writing and photography students, merging the Life: Though Words and Lens exhibition with the concert,” Chris Mayer, musical director for the group said. “It is always very satisfying and uplifting to see students’ talents in action, and I think we are very lucky at Cowley in that we can join forces to do cross-disciplinary things.”
