More than 100 pictures presented at Digital Photography Gallery
Students in Cowley College’s digital photography class had their work on display during the Digital Photography Gallery held Dec. 7 in the Earle N. Wright Community Room.
The gallery was similar to a portfolio of the students’ works created during the semester. Many of the works were assignments, but others were pieces students just wanted to display. Each student in the class was asked to bring 10 examples of their work, framed, matted and ready to display.
Meg Smith, Cowley College director of journalism/digital photography instructor, was thrilled to see the quality of work done by her students.
“This class is designed for those who wish to document through photography whether it be as a photojournalist or the family photographer,” Smith said. “I put it together with a variety of people in mind, the community member who just wants to get to know his or her camera, the journalism student who wants to improve his or her skill set and the art student who wants to express him or herself through the lens.”
Liz Shepard oversaw the event, while Cowley art instructor Mark Flickinger and his art students, Alex Bowker, Mirabel Ramirez, and Abby Showalter helped hang the photos in the gallery.
Shepard, whose own digital photography is on display in the Wright Room, was amazed at the work done by the students in the digital photography class.
“I was very proud of the work that the students presented,” Shepard said. “It turned out to be a wonderful night and I had lots of compliments on the students’ work.”
Several of the photos on display were sold during the event, including a photo of Ireland Hall taken by Lane Russell, which was purchased by the college for $78.
