Last Call for RiverArts Annual Juried Photography Show Submissions


Photography by Juror Cal Jackson.

The photographer grasps a fleeting slice of time to capture an image that expresses what the mind perceives and feels. A strong image propels the photographer forward, inspiring the skillful use of tools to create a final image to be shared with others. “There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.” (Ansel Adams).

“Fragility” is the theme of RiverArts Annual Juried Photography Show. Photographers are challenged to create images that invoke a sense of fragility: delicacy, vulnerability, a passing moment, a threat of brokenness, frailty of life. Photographs created from a wide range of subjects and techniques will challenge the viewers to engage with their eyes, their intellect and their emotions about our fragile existence.

Artist may submit up to 3 photographic images to the juror. Artists will be notified of acceptance 4 weeks prior to drop off, thereby providing sufficient time for printing and framing. The show will be exhibited in RiverArts main gallery during the month of August.

Best in Show will be awarded $150. Merit Awards will be awarded with no monetary prizes. There will also be a People’s Choice Award.
