Pierce College photographers display work for downtown Santa Barbara

Gianni DiCrosta/ Roundup


Current and former Pierce College photographers hosted a gallery displaying their latest work at Gallery 27 in Santa Barbara yesterday.
Gallery 27 is a part of Brooks Institute’s Cota Street campus.
The gallery is a regular participant in downtown Santa Barbara’s monthly 1st Thursday event. 1st Thursday highlights the work of local artists and musicians.
“Brooks [Institute] wanted to establish more relationships with high schools and junior colleges,” said Adam Gerlach, a gallery assistant. “It’s a good opportunity to put on a good show, and it is a good show.”
“I like the ‘Found & Fiction’ concept, they did a good job with that,” added Gerlach.
The theme of the exhibit, Found & Fiction, highlighted the differing styles of the eight contributing photographers, from on the spot photography to studio photography.
Photographers included Eric Carter, Adrian Sanchez-Gonzalez, Louie Heredia, Jared Iorio, Melissa Keyes, Gil Riego Jr., Lauryn Spielvogel and Lorie Wheeler.
“It’s a good opportunity for [the public] to see our school, and consider other campuses to transfer to,” said Riego Jr.
Just as Riego Jr. had hoped, the public did take notice.
“I’ve been here [to Gallery 27] before. I try to come for all the 1st Thursday [events],” said Sandra Garcia, a resident of Santa Barbara. “It’s always wonderful to see what the young people are working on these days.”
