Visit PCA&D First Friday, February 2nd!
Please join PCA&D in the Photography Hallway Gallery this Friday February 2nd, during the PCA&D First Friday events from 5-7pm, for the opening of For Your Eyes Only, an exhibition of photographs and books presented by the third and fourth year photography majors.
The exhibition is a culmination of a semester-long project in Julia Staples's Advanced Digital Photography course. Each photography student chose a topic to research and photograph. The goal was to think about both how images communicate meaning on the walls of a gallery, as well as inside of a book. Through this assignment, they also learned about image sequencing and color management techniques.
Each student created their own book and will be presenting them along with their prints in the exhibition.
Artists in the exhibition are
- Alexandria Martin, Lititz, PA, junior
- Connor Stillman, Downingtown, PA, junior
- Jose Collantes, Ridgewood, NJ, junior
- Kay Baier, Cranberry Township, PA, junior
- Larissa Ramey, Leesburg, VA, junior
- Michaela Robertson, Hershey, PA, junior
- Sara White, Forest Hill, MD, senior
Also on First Friday: In the Main Gallery
Shivery Proof, an exhibition by Ranu Mukherjee, Dec 18th-Feb 9thRanu Mukherjee’s work explores states of excess, drawing links between present day global capitalism and animism still residual in our collective psyche. Occupying fragments as a generative source, she makes and unmakes images, culling content from a variety of diverse sources ranging from 19th century Indian lithographs to images of current events. Through layering and recombining, she creates an amalgam of media, subjects, ideas and time frames within the same space. Her hybrid films, paintings and textiles look at the construction of culture through creolization, the nomadic, ecology, speculative fiction, desire and the unknown.
