Over hundred people packed the ARTS project for Reflex – an exhibition showcasing work submitted to the John Kippen award; an award judged by industry professionals.
Over 500 images got submitted for the award and the best ones will be hanging on the wall of the popular Downtown gallery until April 2nd.
Photography student Neeti Jain was proud to have one of her pieces on the exhibition. “This is the first time our faculty displays work outside Fanshawe College. So, it’s a privilege to get our work selected in the competition and have people and friends come to see it.” Jain continued, “It’s the best feeling.”
The piece consisted of a woman from India and bears the title of ‘The Tribal Woman’.
Professor Rachel Lincoln says it’s exciting to have her students showcase their work since it gives them a glance of how it is to set an exhibition professionally, and the award component adds a feeling of competition to the students course load.
“They work really hard to get the best image possible, and it shows,” said Lincoln, “It’s a rewarding experience for them to see their work displayed. It’s exciting for them and it’s exciting for me as well.”
Pieces range from portraits to commercial images and more.
