Chestertown RiverArts invites photographers to submit work for consideration for inclusion in a juried photography exhibit to open in the RiverArts online viewing room on September 28.
Curator William Trainor writes “In this Juried Exhibition, we would like to see the artistic vision of your image. We would like you to use your photographic skills to produce an image that brings something to tell us, inspire us, or surprise us. So, use your skills of composition and the use of light and dark, empty space, contrast, focus, background, elements of art and design to generate an artistic image that speaks to us all.”
Judge Linda Roy Walls will select winners of Best in Show, Second and Third for cash prizes, as well as an Honorable Mention award. Viewers will vote on a “People’s Choice” Award. Submission is online with a deadline of September 14. Find guidelines and forms online at the RiverArts Community website
