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.
