VANCOUVER, Wash. — For the fourth year, colorful and creative images created by students in fine arts and electronic media and culture classes are on display in Washington State University Vancouver’s Student Services building gallery now through the end of May.

Harrison Higgs, assistant professor of humanities and director of WSU Vancouver’s Multimedia Application Research Studio teaches students how to use photography and digital imaging tools to create artistic images for electronic and print output. His courses are part of the electronic media and culture program that prepares students for multimedia and Internet-related careers.

“The concept behind an image is important in any fine arts class, but the particular focus of this show and its artwork is formal concerns– composition, shape, line, color, perspective, and motion,” said Higgs.

Students enrolled in the electronic media and culture program learn about the historical, cultural and practical impacts of digital media, as well as skills for Web authoring and design, digital imaging and Web research. Completion of the electronic media and culture program culminates in a bachelor’s degree in humanities or social sciences.

The Student Services gallery is open during building hours — Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Gallery exhibits at WSU Vancouver are coordinated by the Office of Campus Advancement. WSU Vancouver is located at 14204 NE Salmon Creek Avenue. For more information call (360) 546-9600.
