The Grand Rapids Community College Collins Art Gallery is presenting the Photo Student Exhibit, an event displaying the best work of GRCC photography students.

The 75 images showed in the exhibition were taken by GRCC photography students from all levels. It presents a “selection of the best work from every class” of the last summer and fall semesters, according to Filippo Tagliati, the exhibit’s curator.

The usual format of printed images around the gallery used for this exhibition was changed this year. The images are now displayed in a high definition projector that repeats the entire exhibit every 25 minutes.

“It’s a great opportunity for students …” Tagliati said. “They were very happy to be inside the exhibition because it’s a great exposure.”

The Photo Student Exhibition will be displayed until Feb. 7. Hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and noon- 3 p.m. on Friday.

Photography students will have the chance to show their work once again along with Fine Arts students during the GRCC Student Exhibition starting on April 1.
