NEWS Release and Posting from the Lambton College Website

SARNIA, April 8, 2016 – Lambton College’s Digital Photography students are ready to put their work on public display. For the next week, second year students in the program will be presenting gallery exhibitions of their work across the city. The year-end showcase is part of a final project that students need to complete in order to graduate.

This year, the community will have the opportunity to take in a total of 12 student gallery shows across the city highlighting over 250 unique photographic creations. As part of their final project, students had to create new art pieces for the exhibition, print and frame their photos, and arrange a public place to display their work. Each exhibition was also required to host an opening night event.

While the majority of the student shows open this week, a handful of students have already opened their exhibitions, including student Rebekah Harding who sold over $1,000 worth of prints at her opening night gala. Harding will be donating 100 per cent of her gallery profits to charity. Her show "Excursion - Photographic Exhibition” is currently on display at Junior Baker (165 Lochiel St.).

Photography student David Beaton is also receiving wide-spread attention for his show, titled 
“Talking Bodies: A Photographic Investigation of Body Image” which takes a closer look at a serious social issue. Beaton’s exhibition is currently on display at Bayside Mall alongside nine other student exhibits.

Two other gallery exhibits are also being showcased at the Lawrence House Centre for the Arts.
A faculty photography showcase is also currently on display in the College’s Library Resource Centre.

Most exhibitions will run until April 15 and program faculty hope the public will take this opportunity to witness some of the incredible talent produced at Lambton College.

Most of the student photographers will be present during their gallery shows this Saturday from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

THANKS to the many, many people who came to visit and chat with our students at their successful exhibitions!! It is a monumental achievement for them to complete this challenge.  From the many, many comments and feedback we have received, it is obvious that the work was well received.

One visitor using just one word to describe the work and creativity summed up the evening when she simply said "Wow!"
