MANITOWOC — Silver Lake College will open an exhibit of photography, “ach•ro•mat•ic: The Absence of Color” by award-winning photographer Ché Correa of Neenah on Feb. 26.

The exhibit will be shown in the Donald P. Taylor Gallery through March 23. Hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays.

A reception for the artist will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on March 2. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public. 

“Che’s work is professional and edgy. I think the college community is going to really respond to it. It is also exciting for students to see that, as a photographer, you can pursue advertising and/or photojournalism, as well as personal creative works,” said Erin LaBonte, associate professor of art and art department co-chair at Silver Lake College.    

Correa said she continues to learn, grow and change as she seeks new ways of self-expression. Through the viewfinder, she frames scenes to tell the stories as they are, or sometimes combines other elements to make up stories that have never been.

Correa graduated with a technical diploma in photography and an associate’s degree in design and graphic technology from Northeast Wisconsin Technical College. She also completed an internship at one of the leading advertising photography studios in the Fox Valley area.
