King University News :: King Students Present Photography Exhibit "Affect" April 27

Four King University student photographers are pleased to announce the senior exhibition “Affect” to be held April 27, 2013. The exhibition will be showcased from 6-9 p.m. in the gallery located at 14 Bank Street, directly behind the KP Duty Restaurant on State Street in downtown Bristol, Tenn. The artists will be present to discuss their artwork.  All prints will be available for sale.

“Affect” is a senior photography exhibition presenting a unique showcase by photography major Samantha Glenn, photography major Joshua Hutton, Bible Religion and Photography major Blake Patrick, and photography major Adam Robinson.  Their work is an assortment of traditional prints, multimedia pieces, and magazines.  Through their work, each student encountered different elements of emotion.

Samantha Glenn will showcase the relationship between her immediate family and their favorite childhood objects.  For her project, “Family Ties” she recorded short audio tracks from each of her family members discussing their particular memory of the toy.  Joshua Hutton’s “Me, Myself, I(dentity)” is a series of images that were created through reflection and self-evaluation.  In order to cope with his parents’ divorce, Blake Patrick takes all the harsh details of what occurred and made a multimedia piece titled “Therapy.”  Patrick considers this both an art form and a form of healing in order to leave behind that part of his life and move forward.  Adam Robinson will show his work, entitled “Peace,” a series of work focused on the band If Birds Could Fly.  Since April 2012, Adam has been photographing the band at live shows, behind the scenes, and creating promotional materials.  He will present prints and zines (small magazines).

The public is invited to experience the senior photography exhibition “Affect” on April 27 from 6-9 p.m. at 14 Bank Street, located directly behind KP Duty on State Street.  Please contact Samantha Glenn for more information at or 615.439.5520.
