Published: Thursday, April 25, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

Classmates from the Northern Illinois University School of Art are collaborating to present a one-night exhibition of their photographic work from 6 to 9 p.m. May 4 at the Art Annex, 2211 Sycamore Road, DeKalb, behind the former Small’s Furniture City.

This event, titled “The Looking Box,” encompasses the work of 10 contemporary photographers enrolled in ARTD 469: Problems in Photography, an upper level independent study course at NIU taught by Kimberly Turner.

Artists included in the exhibition are: Adam Sexton, Ben Walton, Bri Short, Cory Boston, Danielle Buss, Dorian Burks, Emily Skinner, Jacki Eggert, Jenna Wecker and Tess Cochrane.

Throughout the semester, each student has developed a body of work based on a concept of their choosing. Alongside building a portfolio, they have been expanding their professional practice skills. This exhibition was completely organized and promoted by the students themselves.

Ranging from video to traditional black and white prints, the exhibition is composed of a variety of styles and digital techniques.

Refreshments will be served.
