Come support the 2010 graduating seniors in Gwinnett Tech”s Commercial Photography program at their opening event on Saturday, September 11, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Gwinnett Tech”s culinary arts program will also be lending a hand at the event and will provide hors d”oeuvres.
"October is actually the beginning of Atlanta Celebrates Photography. Fortunately, we get two months to show," says Kim Harkins, program director, Commercial Photography, Gwinnett Tech. "It”s important for us to show in a gallery. We”ve had up to 700 people attend our openings, and this year we have the largest graduating group in the program”s 26 year history."
The portfolio presentation will consist of work from the Commercial Photography program”s 30 graduating seniors including portrait, still life, photojournalism, landscape and fine arts projects from each student. In addition to the portfolio show, some of the commercial photography seniors will showcase 3D photography in the downstairs portion of the ART Station gallery.
"Everyone who attends the show will be issued 3D glasses," says Harkins. "Thirty 3D images from the students will be used in this portion of the exhibit."
The portfolio presentation and 3D gallery will continue at ART Station through Oct. 30, and will then move to Gwinnett Tech”s campus Media Gallery beginning Nov. 4 for additional public viewing.
