The Mott Community College Photography Program is proud to present the first exhibit from the Gordon LaVere Collection. The exhibit opens in the lobby of the newly renovated MCC Library on Friday, May 13, with a reception featuring the artist at 4 pm.
This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
Gordon LaVere has been a Flint-based photographer for more than 40 years. In that time, he has recorded much of Flint’s history through his industrial, architectural and portrait work. LaVere has a keen eye for composition and the ability to capture subtle emotion, making his portraits poignant and compelling.
LaVere generously donated his entire body of work to Mott Community College’s Photography Program in 2010. Under the direction of Photography Program Coordinator Bob Rentschler, students in the Photography Program are converting the print collection to digital format to preserve this historically significant body of work. The students also curated and installed the current exhibit, and will work on future exhibits as well.
Mott Community College’s Photography Program offers an associate degree program designed to prepare students for careers in photography, or to transfer to four-year institutions. The Photography Program also offers classes for non-majors, and for individuals seeking to improve their digital photography skills.
