Artist Kate Shannon brings a new perspective to photography and art in her exhibition “You Deserve More” opening Monday, Sept. 26 at the Robert F. DeCaprio Art Gallery inside the Fine and Performing Arts Center, Building F, at Moraine Valley Community College, 9000 W. College Pkwy., Palos Hills.

Shannon’s exhibition, the first multimedia show presented at the college’s gallery, showcases the relationship between the contemporary consumer and advertisers using digitally manipulated photographs, animations and videos.

The exhibition features photographic images displaying funfair attendees stripped of their environment leaving only their figures and their reaction to a business that profits from human desire. Shannon also uses projectors and screens to bring attention to popular words, images and techniques used in advertising to evoke emotion and realization in viewers.

An associate professor of photography and digital media at The Ohio State University Mansfield, Shannon received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in studio art and photography from the University of Kentucky and a Master of Fine Arts in studio art and photography from The Ohio State University. She has exhibited her creative work across the country.

The Robert F. DeCaprio Art Gallery provides an opportunity to view locally and nationally recognized arts. Exhibits in the gallery are free to the public and available for viewing Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., as well as during most performances in the Fine and Performing Arts Center.
