Pictures at an Exhibition

Snapshots are crap shots


Everybody believes they're a great photographer, but vacation photos and candid cell phone shots do not a photographer make. It takes an artistic eye to compose a great shot, and it requires a deft technical hand to print a shot. St. Charles Community College has rounded up a unique group of photographers for the exhibition The Unconventional Camera in the Donald D. Shook Fine Arts Building (4601 Mid Rivers Mall Drive; 636-922-8202 or The show features work by nine local photographers, whose personal styles range from Russ Rosener's cinematic, black-and-white portraits (his work is pictured) to the highly artistic, documentary-style shots of Jennifer Silverberg (the official photographer of the RFT, incidentally). Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. The Unconventional Camera remains up through Thursday, October 16.
Mondays-Saturdays. Starts: Sept. 8. Continues through Oct. 16, 2008
