NIU art students create one-night photo exhibit
DeKALB – Classmates from the Northern Illinois University School of Art will present a one-night exhibition of their photographic work at 6 p.m. Saturday, May 4, at the Art Annex, 2211 Sycamore Road, behind the Small’s Furniture City building.
This event, titled The Looking Box, encompasses the work of 10 contemporary photographers enrolled in ARTD 469: Problems in Photography, an upper-level independent study course taught by Kimberly Turner. Artists included in the exhibition are Adam Sexton, Ben Walton, Bri Short, Cory Boston, Danielle Buss, Dorian Burks, Emily Skinner, Jacki Eggert, Jenna Wecker and Tess Cochrane.
Throughout the semester, each student has developed a body of work based on the concept of their choosing. As they built their portfolios, they expanded their professional practice skills. This exhibition was completely organized and promoted by the students themselves.
Ranging from video to black-and-white prints, the exhibition is composed of a variety of styles. Refreshments will be served.
