“Our SMC Emeritus students have an astonishingly broad range of experience in photography,” said Dr. Scott C. Silverman, Associate Dean of SMC Emeritus. “Some have taken classes with us for just a semester or two, while others have taken classes here for a number of years. You will find these photographers’ work to be artistic and beautiful. It would be fantastic to see you there.”

The salon-style group exhibition features a remarkable variety of recent photographic works created by 33 students. The students are: Kathleen Battersby, Dorli Burge, Miles Clay, John Dalton, James Eidelman, Caroline Gerstley, Jim Gerstley, Miriam Duman Goldberg, Trude Haas, Kathleen Higgins, Jeff Hogue, Marilyn Kabakov, Suzie Kim, Chenkung Lee, Leticia Lua, Raffaello Mazza, Wendy Miller, Regina Pally, Allan Popelka, Doris Power, Judy Raffel, Linda Rosman, Karen Sandler, Ganna Shneydina, Marilyn Stern, Jo Tashima, Michael Telerant, Jonathan Tillman, Linda Velonis, Alex Vital, Gloria Vitto, James Wang, and Linda Zarou.
