Maine Media College joins with Camden Library to present the Maine Media College Alumni Show. This exhibition of college students’ work opens May 3 and runs through May 31 with an opening reception on May 19 from 6:30 – 8:00 pm.
Brenton Hamilton, Photography Professional Certificate (PC) Program Chair explains, “This show, curated by Maine Media College, celebrates our students whose work runs the range from documentary to landscape, city space to abstraction. Viewers will find the work very diverse, with very different visions represented.”
Thirteen graduates will exhibit their work in the library’s Jane Picker Room. Alumni from Camden, Hope, Rockland, South Freeport, as well as California, Colorado, New York City, Chicago and Texas represent the dynamism present among the college’s program and students.
Maine Media’s President, Charles Altschul, notes, “We are one of only 36 colleges in Maine and people are often not aware of the work our college students produce. We are happy to participate with the Camden Library in this exhibition and to showcase the work our students produce.”
Hamilton stays in touch with his students and follows their career progress. He concludes, “The PC program, completed in 30 weeks, is an immersion in a rare atmosphere of deep study. Creative work is born in an atmosphere of experiment, support and practice. And that’s pure vitality, purely Maine Media College.”
