Student photo exhibit opens

The San Diego City College Photo Club is preparing for its Fall 2013 Student Exhibition.

The photo club typically holds an exhibition every spring. This will be the first year it is also conducting one in the fall.

As Photo Club President Edward Honaker explained, “We have such a nice facility, why not utilize it year round?”

As opposed to the spring exhibition that is judged, the fall exhibition gives students a chance to have their work displayed in a non-competitive environment.

Last year, the spring exhibition had roughly 75 participants.

Honaker explained that the event is “ … a great place to see our best students’ work.”

There were no requirements for the type of photos that were submitted. Categories included, but were not limited too: portfolios, commercial, portraiture, and fine art; it could be in color or black and white.

The award winning photo department offered 19 classes this fall, ranging from basic black and white to landscape and nature photography.

They also offer a travel photography course every summer. Last summer’s trip took participants to Cuba. In previous years, students have traveled to Europe.

Students not only gain experience in the field of photography through the department, but can also earn an associate degree and a certificate of achievement in visual and performing art photography.

The opening reception for the exhibit will be Friday, Nov. 15 at 6:30 p.m. and remain open until approximately 9 p.m. in the Luxe Gallery, located on the fifth floor in the V Building.

The exhibition will be free and open to the public.

Photos will be on display from 10 a.m to 10 p.m on Nov. 15 through Nov 29. For more information, contact Honaker at [email protected].
