All artists are invited to submit their photographic work to the Judged Annual Photography Show to be on exhibit in the gallery for the month of August. You are challenged to transform the inanimate image that the camera dutifully records into a work of art that expresses the passion of the mind’s eye. This open-themed call for entry is open to all subject matter. All capture types, subject matter and photographic processes are eligible to submit. Photography pieces will be paired with a complementary piece of art from the woodworking submissions. In this judged show, awards will include a modest monetary prize awarded for “Best in Show,” and non-monetary awards for Merit Awards in a variety of categories which may include Nature and Wildlife, Scenic, Street Life, Human Subjects and Portraiture, Abstracts, Still life, Black and White, and Creative Digital Enhancement. This is a highly popular annual show with historically wide-ranging participation from regional photographers.
The Woodworking Showcase is a judged woodworking show, displayed in the Main Gallery and Studio Galleries. Established and emerging woodworking artists are invited to enter their original creations in wood – made by carving, turning or any other woodworking technique. The curators seek to display a wide variety of articles and styles representing the best in woodworking craftsmanship and design. Entries will be judged with modest cash prizes awarded. The beauty of these wood objects will be enhanced a concurrent Photography Exhibit in the Main Gallery, comprising 2-D art which also emphasizes beauty in shape, line, and space.
