Apr 02, 2014

Edmonds Community College’s art gallery this spring will feature photos from six alumni — Katelyn Campen, Emily Getts, Felix Hidajat, Jordan Ingmire, Brian Oh, and Matt Verzola — in a group exhibit titled “Looking Back.”

It opens April 7 and continues through May 2 in the college’s art gallery on the third floor of Lynnwood Hall, 20000 68th Ave. W.

A reception with the artists is 4-6 p.m., Friday, April 18, in the college art gallery.

Edmonds CC’s Photography department fosters a sense of purposeful aesthetics in each student’s visual narrative, which has further propelled their artistic passion into a career.

The exhibit provides viewers an opportunity to examine what has transpired in their lives after leaving the campus.
