EvCC Art Gallery Showcases 60 Years of Photography through March 15
EVERETT, Wash. – Explore 60 years of photography by retired Everett Community College instructor John Lindstrom at EvCC’s Russell Day Gallery through March 15.
The “Retrospective” collection includes photographs of ancient relics, athletic action, families, jazz, flowers and vegetables and journalistic photographs taken during the past 60 years.
Lindstrom has been taking photographs since age 12 when his parents gave him a Brownie camera and home darkroom kit. He taught photography from 1966 to 1998 at University of Oregon, University of Florida and Everett Community College, where he retired. His articles and photographs have appeared in newspapers and magazines nationally.
In 1979, Lindstrom began producing fine-arts photographic prints using a brilliant and long-lasting material called Cibachrome.
“His new color work brings photography to a level of refinement similar to that achieved by the Impressionists, who were the first to explore color effects,” gallery director Greg Kammer said.
EvCC’s Russell Day Gallery is open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Fridays. The gallery is closed Saturdays and Sundays.
The gallery is located in Parks Student Union room 219 at Everett Community College, 2000 Tower St.
