Sand will present “Reminiscence” from noon-5 p.m., today through Friday, Dec. 5 in the Trahern Student Gallery, Room 108.

Sand's second exhibit, “Transitions,” will be on display at the Framemaker Store located at 705 N. Second St. in Clarksville. The show will be accessible to the public from 10 a.m-5 p.m., now through Friday, Dec. 5.

Sand's exhibit is a culminating experience for candidates enrolled in the Bachelor of Fine Arts program at APSU. Sand's exhibition will consist of mostly digital photography but will also contain altered and digitally manipulated antique portraits and snapshots.

Sand's images use subtle manipulations, frame-to-frame relationships and the nature of photography itself to explore the issues of perception and interpretation, reality and existence, time and death.

“Some of my work challenges the traditional definition of photography,” Sand said. “Working with already existing antique portraits or snapshots is an unusual approach.”

“However,” Sand explains, “I believe that the emotions of these objects combined with how I react to them and what I bring to them produces something that could not be created any other way. I'm not concerned with how it's categorized.”
