Juried Photography 2014
|These fine art photographers are extending and reinventing the classic methods of photography. The wide variety of mediums available allows photographers to select a creative process that will enhance their inspiration, allowing them greater self-expression in their creation of a unique, one-of-a-kind work of art.|
Juror Jennifer Schlesinger Hanson's theme for this exhibition was Medium and how various mediums of photography are used to enhance an artist's statement or intention in their work. Works are often most successful when the subject matter is paired well with the correct choice of medium - the two have a symbiotic relationship. The works chosen for this exhibit reveal the greatest combination of the artist’s medium with their subject. Enjoy selected images from the exhibit below.
Congratulations to Tim McCoy on the sale of "Holy Family"!
