HARRISBURG, Pa. – An exhibit of student photography will be on display Nov. 21-Dec. 8, 2022, in the Rose Lehrman Art Gallery on the Harrisburg Campus of HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College.
The exhibit will showcase over 40 photographs by current students. The collection covers a variety of subject matters, including landscapes, portraits, still lives, nudes and architecture.
A public reception for the students will be held Dec. 8 from 5:30-7 p.m. in the gallery. Awards will be presented at 6 p.m.
HACC’s Photography Program includes a traditional black-and-white photo-developing lab, 14 individual color dark rooms, a digital photography classroom and a “Northern Light” studio with a retractable roof that allows students to photograph objects in perfectly diffused, natural daylight.
Since 1988, HACC students have competed in photography competitions with more than 2,000 other colleges and universities and have consistently been among the top three winners in each competition. Additionally, HACC has notable alumni, including Sean Simmers who worked for The Patriot-News in 2012 when the newspaper’s staff was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for coverage of the Jerry Sandusky case.
Gallery hours are Monday-Friday from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.; Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5-7 p.m.; or by appointment.
The gallery received state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
