Students exhibit finest works

Lisa Kerner, Contributing Writer

Join the photography students at Black Hills State University for the opening reception of Viewpoint, a student photography exhibition on Dec. 4, 2018 from 4 to 6 p.m. The exhibition reception will be held in the Photographer’s Gallery located in the Jonas Academic Building.

The walls and halls of the photography department will be lined with student work, ranging from Photo Special to Advance Photography. The subject matter will range from fine art photography to alternative photo printing methods. The photography will be on display through Spring 2019.

Jennifer Anderson, a senior graphic design major, will be presenting a series of alternative prints that focus on how she sees memories.

For many students, an exhibition in a student show is an important step in their burgeoning art careers.

“It allows for networking with the community, other students and other artists. This could result in collaborative opportunities, jobs or commissioned works,” Anderson said.

Photography professor Skott Chandler said, “It is critical for students to exhibit their work as artist/photographers.”

Chandler explained that exhibiting teaches students to  identify the highest quality images they have created during the semester, and how  to professionally present their work for public viewing. He further detailed that students in the exhibition are required to professionally print their images, and matte and frame their work for exhibition. They are also responsible for the sequencing of their series and for the installation of the pieces to be exhibited.


The Photographer’s Gallery is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
