Kenai Peninsula College: Around Campus

KPC’s Kenai River Campus will be housing Rarefied Light 2012, an annual statewide juried photography exhibition, in the Gary L. Freeburg Gallery until Feb. 6. The traveling exhibit, which is sponsored by the Alaska Photographic Center, showcases some of Alaska’s best fine art photography of 2012 as selected by invited juror Cig Harvey.
