Photography Students Excited About First Exhibition

“Oh Snap,” an exhibition of photography showcasing a collection of stunning images from Mrs.Dantzler’s 8th grade photography class, will be held Tuesday, January 13th, 2015  from 5:30pm-7:00pm in the STMS gallery. A reception will begin at 5:15pm.

“My students and I are extremely excited about our upcoming exhibition,” said Mrs.Dantzler. “These continuing digital photography students have been working hard this semester honing their skills, and this is a wonderful opportunity for them to showcase their talents.”

The exhibition will feature works by Christian Benson, Becca Craig, Isabella Dunn, Tyler Eastwood, Tanner Garris, Isaac Harvell, Jasmine Hicks, Peyton Massey, Mya McKinney, Khailiah Morrison, Cheyenne Nivens, Karian Petrovich, Sean Pratt, and Joseph Schram. Mrs. Dantzler said support for this project is being provided by the Arts Council of York County small grants program, the John and Susan Bennett Memorial Arts Fund of the Coastal Community Foundation of SC, and the SC Arts Commission, which received funding from National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support, she said, is being provided by Lifetouch school studios and their local representative, Bill Blackston. “None of this would ever be possible had it not been for the support we have received from them and our principal,” said Mrs. Dantzler.

Dantzler said her students have been working on various angles and techniques. Some of the things that they have focused this semester include still life, nature, forced perspective, lines and curves, portrait and monochrome. Some of the students have even modeled their images after many famous photographers including Aaron Siskind.

“I think it’s a good thing we’re doing because our parents and other people in our school don’t get to see the work we’re doing,” said Jasmine Hicks who enjoys taking nature photographs.

Christian Benson agreed. “I think it’s good  that we get to show off what we’ve been doing,” he said. “We’ve never had this before.”

Khailiah Morrison added, “I like that we get to show off our talents.”
