College of Du Page photography students supported Oak Brook’s Graue Mill with unique style as contributors to “At the Mill: A Photographic Fine-Arts Exhibition” which was held from July 15-Aug. 6.
“At the Mill” was the fourth juried photography exhibition fundraiser set up by C.O.D. instructor Mary Dew’s Photographic Exhibition course students. The students organized and made all the important decisions regarding the show – everything from establishing its name, to marketing, to setting up the show, and all the details in between.
“The students are always highly motivated and very eager to learn, to get their work out there, to get feedback about their work, to learn about how to market, and just the whole aspect of the fine arts world,” said Dew.
This year, 12 students were involved and over 40 fine art photographs were on display. Fred Drury, a College of Du Page photography faculty member, served as juror for the show. Additionally, each photographer contributed one photograph of the mill. Photographs of the mill were featured separately from the rest of the portfolio pieces, mounted on easels.
Twenty percent of the show’s proceeds went to support Graue Mill’s programs.
