As part of their final semester at Paris Junior College, two students will show their photographs at an exhibit in the Foyer Gallery beginning Feb. 5. An opening reception will be held from 4:30-6:00 p.m. on Feb. 5 at the gallery and the public is invited to attend. Featured students are Jessica Guajardo of Sulphur Bluff and Montel Thomas of Paris.

“The exhibit will celebrate their body of work as they prepare to graduate in May,” said Visual Arts Instructor Susan Moore. “Montel is fascinated with nature and abandoned buildings and how they reflect on our society. Jessica’s work focuses on how hands are like portraits of their owners and her close-up work becomes abstract and organic beyond the simple nature of hands.”

The exhibit will be open at PJC’s Foyer Gallery to the end of February. For more information call 903-782-0438.
