Super Art is Almost

KCC annual Student Art exhibit features work by three local students.

Earlier this spring, Kellogg Community College hosted an annual Student Art Exhibition featuring 97 works from nearly 50 students currently in art, photography, multimedia and graphic design programs.

Three of them were local students and all earned an honorable mention in the show — Jacob Taylor of Coldwater, Rachelle Hawks of Union City and Kristen Lehman of Bronson.

Jacob Taylor

Taylor, graduated from Coldwater High School in 2020 and about the same time, he started using a camera more seriously.

“My interests in photography spiked when we had that weird sun last year when the California fires smoke distorted the way the sun looked,” Taylor said.

Maybe it also helped the his girlfriend, Alli, is also an artist herself who mostly does paintings.

“The thing that drew me to photography is the fact that you’re not necessarily creating anything, but instead you are changing a person’s perception of the world around them,” Taylor said. “I love seeing all the texture in an image and all the sharp edges.”
