Student photography on display at WWU

Students at William Woods University are demonstrating a
combination of raw talent and learned ability through the student photography
exhibit, which is open
until Friday, Feb. 24, on the second floor of Gladys Woods Kemper Center of the
Arts.

The exhibit, titled Personal
Perspectives, displays a wide-array of
student photography on a variety of subjects. 
Horses, nature and couples are among the most
popular subjects photographed. 
 
Students included in the show were
enrolled in the
fundamentals of photography class during the fall semester of 2011.
 
The students are Devin Jeffres, Amanda Seitter, Mere
Culbertson, Meagan Roberts, Hilary Fink, Hannah Jay, Kate Elson, Mark Loeber,
Jamie Skubal, Amanda Coehoorn, Meghan Warren, Jessica Hornung, Katy Carron and
Jessica Rackers.
 
They chose five of their best
pieces of work completed for the class to display as part of the
exhibit. Displaying their photos
publically provides them an excellent opportunity to reach the public eye.
 
“One of the purposes of photography, like any other
art form, is to share work with an audience,” said Bob Elliott, assistant professor of
graphic arts.  “This exhibit gives
students that
opportunity.  Student photographs become more than just a
response to a class assignment.  They
become a publically shared artistic expression.”
                                                             
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.
