SIUE will host a photo exhibition in Saint-Charles

The OVERLOOKED photography exhibition will be held April 23 through June 3 at the Framations Art Gallery, 218 N. Main St. in St. Charles, Missouri.

The opening hours of the exhibition will be from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. from Tuesday to Saturday.

How can photography help us see? What do we overlook in ourselves as we move through the world? How can a photograph help us look further, deeper – into ourselves and around us? A lens between our eyes and the world around us can reveal things we wouldn’t otherwise see.

In this exhibit showcasing the work of advanced photography students at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, each artist uses their camera as a tool to illuminate aspects of our lives that are often overlooked.

The body becomes a landscape, a map of past experiences. The story of creation is revisited and imagined. We meet people who are quietly busy unpacking their white privilege. The visual landscape of the present begins to tell us stories of the past.

We see what it feels like to exist in isolation. Fantasy shows us new truths about reality. This exhibition breaks the blinders and asks us to slow down and interrupt the ever faster pace of our lives, to take a closer look at what is too often overlooked.

An artist talk and reception, featuring advanced photography students Aaron McMullin, Brooke Krankel, Darren Bennett, Hannah Urquhart, Kelly Gaines, Natcha Wongchanglaw and Terrance Wellmaker, will take place from 6-8 p.m. on Saturday, April 23 .
