From May 2 to 18, intermediate photography students at College of the Siskiyous will be showcasing work ranging from digital photography to film photography to processes as old and simple as a pinhole camera.
Photography instructor James Gilmore and his students co-curate the annual show, which is designed to get students “to think about the organization that goes into creating a successful photographic art exhibition,”?according to a news release from the college.
This year’s show, titled “Visual Alternatives,” draws its title from “seeing with the mind’s eye rather than relying on the impassive eye of the camera,” the release states. “The student collaborative hopes the title will reflect their ‘think outside of the box’ mentality that shaped much of the art in the upcoming show.”
Students are pushed to not only create their best work, “but to analyze and create a cohesive vision for their pieces and how they fit within the show.”
The exhibit will feature artwork from COS photography students Kimberlee Oliver, Tiffany Kramer, Kelly Samuelson, Sarah Foster, Sharon Clavell Szczybor, Julia Fryling, Samantha Higgins, Issac Inselman, Elsie McDonald, Madison Moser, Jeremy Walker, Annemarie Rutherford, Chehalis Schumacher, Joshua Thom, Jaclyn Templin, and Krisy Virgona.
An opening public reception is scheduled for Wednesday, May 2, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Art Gallery of the Learning Resources Center at the College of the Siskiyous Weed Campus.
