KCC photography exhibit features student landscape photos of Iceland

Landscape photos on display in the gallery.

A new photography exhibit on display at Kellogg Community College this summer is showcasing nearly 50 landscape photos shot by KCC students in Iceland.

The photographs were shot during an 11-day class trip to the country as part of the College’s ART 220: Landscape Photography course in May. Subjects include stunning views of glaciers, ice caves, mountainous hills, rocky beaches and other primarily natural native landscape scenes.

“Iceland: An ART 220: Landscape Photography Class Exhibition” opened June 13 and will run through Aug. 29 in the Davidson Visual and Performing Arts Center’s Eleanor R. and Robert A. DeVries Gallery, on campus at 450 North Ave. in Battle Creek.

The exhibit is free and open to the public during regular summer gallery hours, which are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays.

A closing reception – also free and open to the public – will be held with the artists from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 29, in the gallery.

KCC’s ART 220: Landscape Photography course generally runs every other summer, giving students and community members alike a chance to learn their craft on trips out of state. Previous destinations have included a “Deep South” trip along the Georgia coast and a tour of the American Southwest, among other locations. Photography students shared the trip this year with science students traveling for a course on climate change and sustainability.
