Selected Entries for Photo 2012

Thank you to all the artists who submitted to the 32nd Annual Photography Exhibition.  This is our first fully online entry process.  While many were delighted to enter from the comfort of their homes and not bring work to the gallery to be judged, others might have missed the comradarie of the drop off day.  Also, if you are one of the artists who experienced problems with your entry, please except our sincere apology.  Any bugs in our system are being worked out to make future entries as user friendly as possible.  Your participation in this Call for Entries process is greatly appreciated and makes the upcoming show possible.

Our juror, Joan Fitzsimmons looked through well over 300 photographs. Each submission was carefully considered. The final selection of works are listed below.  Ms. Fitzsimmons comments about the work selected are here for your perusal.

Juror’s Statement

It was a true honor to be invited to jury this photography exhibition at the Carriage Barn Arts Center. I never tire of looking at images. That is why I am both a photographic artist and educator. No two individuals are ever going to render the world with the same eye, and that truism holds for this show also. The quality of submissions was quite high. That said, I can only bring my own eye and sensibilities to bear in making choices. I found that I was drawn to no one particular way of seeing. It was the quality of perception, concept, or both that engaged me.

My choices are my own and my own best judgment. Another juror will make other choices. So I encourage all photographers to continue with their own personal engagement and growth, and submit again.
