Opening Reception

Through the Lens is your opportunity to exhibit the best of your photographic creations—the ones that make you or others say, “Wow!”  Let loose your vision and creativity for a fun show that allows for diverse art, but does not require it.  Your art may range from a well-composed still life black and white print to a colorful action-oriented triptych on metal to an innovative 3D arrangement of images, light, and other materials. Share the photographic work that you take pride in creating with an international community through both a gallery and web-based juried exhibit.
