Brooks Institute of Photography has announced that it's "5 x 5"
fine art photography exhibition will be the school's featured event as
a participant in the Downtown Organization's 1st Thursday initiative.
A public artist's reception will take place on Thursday, February 1, 2007
from 5 -- 9 pm at the Cota Street Campus and Gallery, located at 27 E.
Cota Street in Santa Barbara.



Five photographic perspectives by five recent Brooks' graduates depict
this "artist invitational" public exhibition. More than 50 images
will be on display by photographers: Chris Buckpitt (2003), Adam Gerlach (2003),
Kodiak Greenwood (2004), Serena Lee (2005) and Matthew Rainwaters (2003).



Adam Gerlach, who serves as the gallery's assistant director, specializes
in black-and-white photography. He also specializes in hand-toning his work
to transform reality and create strange and unfamiliar qualities in his images.
Greenwood, a native of Big Sur, has twice earned awards in the Fuji photography
competition, and is represented in private galleries. His extensive photography
of the West Coast -- both in color and black-and-white -- has garnered
critical acclaim.



In contrast to outdoor and landscape photography, Chris Buckpitt strives to
capture the essence of people. About his work, he says "I have a very
deep connection to the human race, and I have always found the human body to
be very beautiful."



Serena Lee, already distinguished in her field of portrait, wedding and fine
art photography, finds that her passions lie in using antique and alternative
processes, and digital imaging, to mix the old world with the new. Her work
has been seen in many venues, including the International Photography Hall of
Fame.



Matthew Rainwaters began working with cameras at age 14 shooting skate videos
with his friends. Five years later, he bought a Pentax K-1000 and took a junior
college photography course. A teacher's comment that he was "pretty
good" forever changed his life. Today, his work's featured twice
in the Advertising Photographers of America annual Personal Ads show, appeared
in the notable Focus on Aids charity auction in Beverly Hills, and has shown
in the Frank Lloyd Wright Hollyhock House. He presently teaches photography
and reprints portfolios for publication.



The `5 x 5' exhibition, which opens on January 18, will run through
March 31, 2007. In the coming months, the Cota Campus and Gallery will feature
exhibitions by a range of professional photographers, as well as shows presented
by Brooks Institute students and alumni. The public is invited to visit the
gallery on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., and on weekends from 10 a.m. to 9
p.m. For more information, call the Brooks Institute Cota St. Campus and Gallery
at (805) 690-4913.
