A new exhibit on display Pittsburg State University’s downtown campus, Block 22, was created by students enrolled in portrait photography in the Department of Graphics and Imaging Technologies.
“PSU Student Portrait Work,” was directed and installed in a gallery at Root Coffeehouse & Creperie, 402 N. Broadway, by associate professor Rion Huffman and teaching assistant Jeren Kent.
“Each student practiced techniques in portraiture and chose a favorite image for the gallery,” Huffman said. “Some are traditional, others are more abstract. The central theme is creativity.”
A reception will be held at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 12, for the public to meet the photographers and hear about their process as well as technical aspects of their photography.
Huffman, an award-winning photographer himself, credited locally owned Millers Professional Imaging (MPIX) for providing the students with high quality printing services.
The exhibit will remain on display through the end of May.
