PCC Cascade presents Katie Shannon's With the Happy Crowd
. Shannon writes "My images explore a facet of America's inexorable relationship with the pursuit of happiness, depicting environments where many people congregate in order to create enjoyable moments. I use a camera to interrupt these moments and digital tools to elaborate upon them. These constructed images represent a peculiar and dramatized environment, an exaggerated suggestion of a society in which each individual is incessantly encouraged to seek an impossible fulfillment..." The exhibition runs October 14-November 18, 2010.
