Held on the third flooring of the Gerald R. Sherratt Library, a novel images exhibition was displayed on Nov 8. at three p.m. The pictures will probably be up till the tip of the semester.
The SUU Images Membership hosted the occasion, and President James Culbertson and Vice President Michaela Garcia had been each in attendance.
19 pictures had been held on the far wall of the library, and cookies and drinks had been supplied. College students and professors lined up and noticed the photographs, transferring by the road at a leisurely tempo.
Professor Antone Dolezal chosen the items and supplied a written rationalization of what the “Weird and Wonderful,” exhibition hopes to attain.
“Photography that truly resonates with us has the power to encourage personal growth. . . this type of work can also be challenging for both the artist and viewer. The [exhibition] reflects such a challenge. It showcases the diversity in vision amongst these talented photographers, but also carries common themes that ask us as viewers to look for a deeper hidden reality,” Dolezal stated.
The exhibition featured 5 honorable mentions, positioned on the left aspect of the wall. These footage included “Heart Eyes,” by Lindsay Mitchell, “Distracted,” by Aaron Linkolgle, “Womb 03,” by Kelly Chunning and “Delicate Arch,” by Billy Clouse.
The choice didn’t appear to comply with a theme, besides that they had been all bizarre, however the selection was refreshing. Every image supplied one thing new to take a look at, all intriguing and completely different in their very own manner.
Two notable items of the exhibit had been “Womb 03,” and “Delicate Arch.” Simply probably the most controversial items, the images featured nudity and delicate topics. Garcia was fast to level out each items, conscious that some backlash could come together with them.
Images Membership President, Jame Culbertson, hopes that the exhibit will encourage viewers to submit for subsequent semester’s exhibition.
“Come and support your fellow students, and check out the weird and wonderful pictures people have captured,” Garcia suggests.
