WWG Middle Ridgewater College School SADD Art Gallery features groups travels to at. Kato Pinhole photography By EIIie Vondracek WWG 8th grader On Thursday, February 26, 2004, forty-nine 7th and 8th graders from the WWG Middle School SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) group traveled to Mankato, MN. Their destination: Mt. Kato, to have some winter fun! Mt. Kato gives the opportunity to ski, snow board, snow tube, and mountain bike, although on Thursday only skiing and snow boarding were avail- able. The students greatly enjoyed the trip and have many "fond" memories of the event. The kids had a fabulous time and can't wait for next year! Find us on the Web at www.lyon- Find the Rest of The Story in the Sentinel Tribune The Ridgewater College Art Gallery is featuring a new exhibit by artist John Leopold. Leopold is a gradu- ate of the Ridgewater College Art Program, a native of WiUmar, and is cur- rently teaching at Northland Community College in Thief River Falls. Leopold first spoke to Instructor Marge Nilssen's 'Survey in Art' class about the process of "Pinhole Photography.' Leopold showed the students how to make a pinhole camera, how to take a photograph with it, and develop it in the dark- room. During the 2002-2003 academic year, Leopold was on a Fulbright Teacher Exchange Program in Latvia at the Riga College of Applied Arts. He used this photographic technique to teach students there an eco- nomical yet functional means of photography. "Most of my students were very poor by American stan- dards, and so I found that my usual lessons were sim- ply not possible due to the fact that it was impossible for the students to purchase the additional art materials necessary for the projects," Leopold said. He adds that only two of the students who had signed up for his photog- raphy class had a camera. Leopold's display in the Ridgewater College Art Gallery features photo- graphs that he took during his stay in Latvia. He notes that some photographs appear as if they have 'ghosts' in them, but instead they are real moving objects such as people or cars that the slow 'speed' of the pin- hole camera method could not capture. The exhibit will be open to the public during normal school hours throughout the month of March, and is locat- ed in the Fine Arts Building, on the east side of the Willmar Campus.
