2018 Student Showcase
Multicultural Arts Center in Cambridge, MA • December 5, 2018-January 5, 2019
The BPW is excited to announce our second annual student gallery showcase this December! Photography is an experience as well as a process. Originally, it involved not only capturing the moment, but developing and creating a physical print to truly appreciate the full feeling and incredible details of a photograph.
Digital photography is a fantastic method of creating photos and allows photographers to share their images almost instantly with the digital world. This also means that, sometimes, the art of editing a photo to its highest potential can be lost.
By hosting this gallery showcase, the BPW hopes to honor the photographic print, opening up students to this critical experience of printing their photographs. At the same time, we aim to celebrate our community of students and the beautiful art they create, while fully appreciating and preserving their work.
The period for submissions has ended.
Thank you to all of our talented students who entered the showcase; we can't wait to see your work on display! We invite the BPW community and their family & friends to join us for the opening reception on December 5th from 6p-8p.
The showcase is open only to BPW students. Submissions due October 7, 2018 @ 9pm.
