Student photography on display at William Woods

William Woods University is displaying the work of the
spring 2011 photography class in the Gladys Woods Kemper Center for the Arts
through Sept. 16. The exhibit is in the corridor gallery on the second level.

The show is a combination of black and white and color
photography. The bulk of the work was done with digital cameras. Only some of
it was digitally enhanced.
According to Bob Elliott, assistant professor of
graphic arts, most of the class exercises were designed to teach the basics of
photographic composition, lighting and visual awareness. Students chose their
five best photographs from the semester for inclusion in the show.
“One of the purposes of photography, like any other
art form, is to share work with an audience,” Elliott said. “This exhibit gives
students that opportunity. Student photographs become more than just a response
to a class assignment. They become a publicly shared artistic expression.”
The Gladys Woods Kemper Center for the Arts is open to
the public Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturdays and
Sundays, 1 to 4 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 573-592-4245.
