Artist's Reception for OPEN - 2018

Artist's Reception for OPEN - 2018

Darkroom Gallery will be hosting an Artist's Reception for our first juried exhibit of the year, OPEN - 2018. For this exhibition we asked photographers to submit the images in their portfolio which best represent the kind of photo work they do. In other words, instead of the gallery setting a theme for the exhibit, entrants were invited to choose their own theme. We had a generous response, with images from nearly every photographic genre. Our juror for OPEN - 2018 is Christy Karpinski, founder and editor of the popular online journal F-Stop Magazine

Among the 38 photographers represented in the 54 photos in OPEN - 2018 are several from Vermont, including Peggy Reynolds of Essex Junction, who was awarded an Honorable Mention; Kitty Stanley of Wilder; John Flynn of White River Junction; and Jennifer Miles of Georgia (VT). That's a good showing for such a small place, given that entrants came from all over the world. We'll be displaying photos by photographers from Australia, Greece, Poland, and several other countries, as well as from locations in several US states. Having so many "locals" included in the exhibit speaks highly for the quality of work that Vermont photographers create, and we hope you'll come out to support the "home team".

As always, the reception is free and open to the public, with various beverages and light snacks provided.

Time: 2/24/18 4:00pm - 6:00pm
Location: Darkroom Gallery, Essex Junction
