New Gallery Show Features Student Photography

Komarovski - This untitled photograph from Stanislav Komarovski will be shown at the Student Photography Scholarship Show at Collin County Community College District

June 23, 2006 - Photography by three Collin County Community College District (Collin) scholarship students will adorn the walls of THE ARTS gallery starting Wednesday, July 5. THE ARTS gallery is located at the Spring Creek Campus, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano.

The Student Photography Scholarship Show will feature students Stanislav Komarovski, Jody Wissing and Danny Mulnix Wednesday, July 5- Monday, July 31. A reception is scheduled for 6 p.m., Friday, July 14.

"The bodies of work by these photo-artists are as exciting as they are diverse," Byrd Williams, Collin photography professor, said. "The range of styles covers two dimensions and three, as well as both conceptual narratives and documents."

Komarovski's photographs examine Metroplex bridges "as if they were giant sculptures bathed in mercury vapor," Williams said.

Danny Mulnix's photography, including this piece titled "LeeLee," looks "at women in banal settings."

According to Williams, Mulnix's work looks "at women in banal settings, infused with an odd and indefinable mood shrouding the moment. They appear to be somewhere in between posed and candid."

Wissing's contributions are dioramas, "imaginary rooms filled with the stuff of excess. Garish cultural dioramas that are light painted with color and cluttered with artifacts of pretension."

The show is free and open to the public.

Wissing -- One of Jody Wissing's photographs, "TV," focuses on "stuff of excess."

Summer gallery hours are Monday-Wednesday and Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Thursday, 9 a.m.-7 p.m.; and Saturday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
