Art Gallery to Feature Photos by Mount Students, Faculty and Staff

Dateline: student newspaper

The Studio San Giuseppe Art Gallery at the Mount will host the exhibit “Place” from March 1 to April 1.  The “Place” show is a photography exhibition featuring works from current students, faculty and staff in the Mount community.  The SSG Art Gallery is collaborating with the Mount’s Student Photographic Society (SPS) on the creation of this show around the question “What does Place mean to you?”

Participants were allowed to submit up to 10 photographs per person.  A total of 473 photos were submitted.  The SPS executive officers juried the entries down to 200 photographs representing 70 different photographers, which will be on display in the SSG Art Gallery. 

After installation, a group of faculty and staff who helped with the show’s creation has been invited to choose their favorite piece on display which represents the given theme.  A “Note of Excellence” with the individual faculty/staff’s written response will appear next to his/her choice.

Studio San Giuseppe is a nonprofit art gallery located in the Dorothy Meyer Ziv Art. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays 1 to 5:00 p.m


Accompanying photo is a winning entry by Dr. Elizabeth Mason, Associate Professor of English. She adds: "As I write about this photo, I am staring at the moving boxes that we will take with us to our new home tomorrow. This photograph of my son, Zachary, gazing out of his bedroom window sums up how we feel about our downtown apartment entirely. We love our view of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky skyline, even on a rainy day. And, the faint rainbow in the background represents something beautiful somewhere else. We are on our way."
