Photography group, Frozen Lenses, to present “Illuminate”
Frozen Lenses, a student photography club, will hold their first juried exhibition toay at Venue in downtown Fairbanks. From 5 to 6:45 p.m. people may vote for the People’s Choice Award, and the awards ceremony will be from 7 to 7:30 p.m. Then the event will close at 10 p.m.
The exhibition is based on “…the theme of light, which connects us to the world around us yet also sets us uniquely apart,” according to the Illuminate flyer.
“I think it’s important for people to feel confident and share their art,” Kathryn Reichert, Frozen Lenses media manager said. “It’s important for people in Fairbanks to see what students in their community are doing.”
Students from within Frozen Lenses submitted 49 photos, of which 25 were chosen to be shown at the exhibition. The photos were chosen by a group of 12 jurors who were chosen from a variety of disciplines besides photography such drawing and ceramics.
Frozen Lenses meets on Wednesdays from 1 to 2 p.m. in room 106 of the Bunnell Building. The club has a Facebook page titled “Frozen Lenses: The UAF Photography Club.” The club is open to anyone regardless of their skill level or interests in photography. They have monthly photo contests and guest speakers at their meetings, according to their description on the UA student organizations calendar.
Venue is located on 514, 2nd Ave in downtown Fairbanks.
“Frozen Lenses is a group that looks to bring together people who share a love of photography, whatever that photographic method or preference may be,” Reichert said.
