A host of CCAD students, alumni, and faculty will be represented in IMAGEOhio 14 opening Jan. 21 at the Fort Hayes Shot Tower Gallery.

The annual exhibition of the best photography, video, and new media art in the state will showcase 49 works by 31 artists, selected by jurors Shannon Benine, assistant professor of photography at CCAD, and Aspen Mays, assistant professor of art at Ohio State University. Eight of the artists are connected to CCAD.
