Student Photographers to Exhibit Work

Six female students from assistant professor Robert Cooper's Advanced Photography class at Genesee Community College will exhibit their work in the Lobby Gallery of the Stuart Steiner Theatre. The show, "Talking in Black and White, will open with a photographers' reception on September 10, 2005 from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m., which is free and open to the public. The exhibit will continue through October 5.

The group calls themselves the "Six Shooters" and includes residents from the GLOW region. Robin Markle, who is organizing this exhibit says that "each photographer has developed her own personal preference for style and expression from behind the shuttering lenses of their own cameras." The name "Six Shooters" refers not only to the six members of the group whose work is represented but also to the number of pieces in the exhibit. Each artist has submitted five original photographs for display. A collage created by the group accounts for the "sixth" photo. Other exhibitors include Nancy Masters, Natalie Schmitt, Christine Titus, Priscilla Varland, and Rebecca Green.

Bob Cooper, photography instructor at Genesee "has had a great influence on all of us," Markle admits. "We would like to dedicate this show to him. It is, after all, the greatest compliment to know how one's teaching efforts have made a difference."

Admission to the Six Shooters' "Talking in Black and White" exhibit is free and open to the public. Lobby Gallery hours are 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8:00 a.m. - noon on Saturday. The Gallery is closed on school holidays.
