The Black & White Gallery
The Black and White Gallery, a photography program that partners the Georgia College & State University Public Relations students was founded in June of 2005. The gallery has been designed by Public Relations classes since its inception and was the brainchild of Jenni Prosnak Bruckman, a public relations and advertising major who graduated in 2005. The gallery event was created so that individuals who have expressed an interest in photography could develop could learn the art of photography and develop their skill in picture taking. The group calls themselves the “Photography Club” and they travel all over the state for photography shoots. Once a theme is decided the artist select the pictures to be sent to the students for editing. Once editing is complete, students meet with the artist to decide which pictures he/she wants to make the show. The artist then names the print and the students take responsibility for printing, matting, framing and hanging the show. The Black & White Gallery Gala Opening, spotlighting each artist, is planned and organized by the students. The artist look forward to this night as it is their night to shine. Immediately following the opening, the show is displayed in a local gallery for the up to 30 days. The Gallery is held annually in March as part of Disability Awareness Month. Although the theme of the show differs each year, the photos remain in black & white.
