The Chang School Photography Exhibition, organized by instructor Jill Glessing, gives our creative photography and image arts students an opportunity to display their strongest work in a juried show. Each year, leading professionals from the photography community select several works for their particular merit. The winning artists receive valuable awards that include gifts from photography-supply outlets and arts organizations.

Exhibitors are welcome to invite guests to the opening reception, where they can mingle with their Image Arts colleagues and gallery visitors.
