EdCC alumni return to display photography at gallery

Photographs by six Edmonds Community College alumni are featured through May 2 in the college’s art gallery.

Katelyn Campen, Emily Getts, Felix Hidajat, Jordan Ingmire, Brian Oh and Matt Verzola have a group exhibit titled “Looking Back.”

The gallery is located on the third floor of Lynnwood Hall, 20000 68th Ave. W., Lynnwood. A reception with the artists is 4 to 6 p.m. April 18 at the gallery.

The college’s photo department fosters a sense of purposeful aesthetics in each student’s visual narrative, which has further propelled their artistic passion into a career, said gallery staff. The exhibit provides viewers an opportunity to examine what has transpired in the artists’ lives since leaving the college.

Compen, a former contractor for Google, has built a freelance career with an emphasis in weddings and portraiture.

Getts graduated from Western Washington University’s photography program. She is a freelance photographer based in Seattle.

Hidajat, a fashion and editorial photographer based in Seattle, is a student in the photography program at Seattle University.

Ingmire is a freelance photographer whose clients include ESPN, Red Bull, Arbor, Volcom and La Tabla.

Oh graduated from the University of Washington’s photography program and is a freelance photographer and creative director for Ziibra.

Verzola is a photographer and student in the design program at Cornish College for the Arts. His work includes numerous environmental portrait projects.

The Edmonds Community College gallery is open 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to p.m. Friday and 1 to 5 p.m. on weekends. For more information about the exhibit, go to www.edcc.edu/gallery.
