Seven photographers are participating in the 2016 Photography Certificate exhibition. This year’s artists include Denise A. Bell, Edward Murray, Robert Olson, Debra Phillips, Dan Quigley, Jacob Reinhart and Jennifer Sanchez. Their work covers the concept of home as a physical place and an evolving state of mind, home as past and present, documentation of place: both urban and rural, portraits about the relationship between pets and their owners, and exploring portraits with abstraction. Their processes are as diverse as the concepts; the work is split between color inkjet imagery and 19th century printmaking. Some of the imagery is captured on film and some digital.

These artists are showing bodies of work made in their Filmmakers classes ranging from Documentary Photography, Non-Silver Printing, Advanced Digital Photography, or in some cases completed in an Independent Study. All of the students must complete twelve classes in the photography curriculum to receive their Certificate. The common denominator running through this show is that these artists visually articulate their ideas in ways that spark their passions and interests. 

Show runs March 11 - April 15, 2016
