“A Deeper Look: Stories and Faces” - 7:00 pm
The Gallery at TCC, Building 4 at Tacoma Community College, near the corner of 12th and Mildred
A new art exhibit featuring by photography by Tacoma Community College art instructors Alice Di Certo and Kyle Dillehay opens Oct. 30 in The Gallery. A reception will be held in The Gallery, Nov. 4, 4-7 p.m. The exhibit runs through Dec. 18, 2013. Di Certo’s work tells the stories of children who have been bullied. The photos are paired with narratives derived from interviews. Di Certo notes that she did not take a “journalistic” approach and interview all parties involved in the incidents. Dillehay photographed couples in which partners feel “opposite” to one another in some way, and posted the images adjacent to the couple’s own handwritten notes. Dillehay used a time-intensive process to create contact prints from film negatives using platinum-based emulsions and sunlight exposure. Info:
