The work of seven Furman University students will be on display April 5-27 at downtown Greenville’s Southeast Center for Photography.

The opening reception takes place Friday, April 5, 6-8 p.m. Regular hours are Wednesday-Friday, 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m., and Saturdays 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The Southeast Center for Photography is located on 116 E. Broad St.

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.

For the center’s first college exhibition, more than 525 images from institutions in 10 Upstate counties were considered. Of the 24 students selected to exhibit in the gallery, seven are from Furman.

Representing a diverse range of majors, students include Maddie De Pree (English), a junior from Decatur, Ga.; Jordan Ciniglio (art), a sophomore from Odenville, Ala.; Sophie Harris (art and communication studies), a senior from Greenville; David Lewis (chemistry), a sophomore from Greenville; Tingtong Liu (art and psychology), a sophomore from Lanzhou, China; Aaron Templeton (business), a senior from Knoxville, Tenn.; and Gabby Villagran (art), a junior from Shoreline, Wash.

“Exhibiting work at the Southeast Center for Photography is quite an honor—it’s one of the best exhibition spaces in Greenville,” said Furman Associate Professor of Art Terri Bright. “Entering a juried exhibition is always a humbling experience because you never know what the juror is looking for. In this case, the quality of student work was quite high, so I’m extremely proud of these photography students.”

The College Call was organized by Michael Pannier, director of the Southeast Center for Photography. Students from colleges in Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson, Pickens, Oconee, Greenwood, Laurens, Cherokee, Union, and Abbeville counties were invited to submit up to 10 images, photography, or photo-based art. The submissions were reviewed by juror Zane Logan, a photography instructor at the Fine Arts Center in Greenville.
