Black Hills State University photography students will display five photography exhibits throughout campus now through May 18.  A reception will be held April 24 from 4-6 p.m. in both Jonas and Pangburn Halls to honor the photography students for their achievements.

The Photographers Gallery, located in the lower level of Jonas Hall, will be displaying 40 images from students in the advanced photography course. These photographs are a mixture of conventional sliver-based, alternative silver and digitally produced images.

The Meier Hall Gallery, located on the second floor lobby of Meier Hall, will host photographs from Amanda Goetz, mass communication major from Spearfish,  will display images from a recent internship in Greece. Emily Riedman, mass communication major from Bismarck, N.D., will display her portraiture work.

The Pangburn Gallery, located in the lobby of Pangburn Hall, student work from the Studio Lighting course will be on display.  According to Steve Babbitt, professor of photography, “This collection will demonstrate the ability and creativity that BHSU photography students have in a studio environment.” Also on display in the Pangburn Gallery, Megan Clark, mass communication major and communication arts major from Spearfish, will be displaying examples of studio portraiture taken for her senior graduation exhibit. “The portraits are exquisite and lighthearted,” notes Babbitt.

Finally, on display on the lower level of the Student Union, Jeremiah Watt, Class of ’05,  will be exhibiting work from a recent project dealing with the effects of mining on the landscape and the environment. Watt is currently finishing his Masters of Fine Arts Degree in Photography at Utah State University-Logan. The images on display are part of his graduate thesis and exhibition.
