Art Gallery set for November

The Arts Department will be having an art gallery from Nov. 5 through Dec. 13 called “After Image: The Photographic Process, ” and will be directed by the curator James MacDevitt.

“The emphasis is on what we may define as photographic, what does it take for something to be photographic, when does it become a different medium,” MacDevitt explained.

Manipulation of photo is the theme of the gallery, with artists working on the originality of the photograph.

“We have artists who cut photographs, fold photographs, who pour concrete on them, hole punch photos, and an artist who soaks photos in specialized water.” MacDevitt said.

There will be two sets of artist’s talks in relation with the gallery on Nov. 26 and Dec. 3, with such artists as Soo Kim, Matthew Brandt, William E. Jones, and Christopher Russell.

Students have an opportunity to see exclusive art work by Melissa Steckbauer and Lucas Simoes, neither of which will be exhibied anywhere else in Southern California except in the “After Image” show.

The art gallery will have an opening reception on Nov. 5 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Free food will be available and some of the artists will also be there.

Nursing major, Richard Silva said “I’m interested in seeing it because my cousin is a photographer and he takes weird photos and manipulates the physical aspects of it.”
