Photography Exhibit Entry is Open to All Each year, the Creative Arts Center sponsors a Photography Exhibit, usually in the month of June. This year is no exception and entries are now open for the exhibit. Anyone may enter – membership in the Creative Arts Center is not required, though members may enter at no charge and non-members must pay a fee of $25 per person. Up to three photographs may be entered and all entries must mounted or framed and be wired for hanging. Entries close at noon on Thursday, June 20.
There is no theme to this exhibit and no size minimum or maximum, though Creative Arts Center Executive Director Lisa Avila points out that sometimes bigger is better.
“Larger photographs, if they are clear, colorful and well presented, often have a greater impact on the viewer for many reasons, not the least of which is that the photo is easier to see,” Lisa said. “Though matting and framing is advised, even dry mounting a photo on board or foam core can still be an attractive way to present a photograph and is easier for those on a budget.”
Youth entries are always encouraged and there is no charge for youth and students to enter any exhibit at the arts center.
Entry forms can be found online or picked up at the center, located at 200 W. 5th Street – one block west of the Bonham Square. Any photograph may be offered for sale and the gallery commission is only 20%. There will also be a “People’s Choice” award during the official opening for the exhibit June 21 at 6 PM during the Tapas Dinner, Concert and Wine Down. The winner of the People’s Choice wins a cash prize. Tickets for that event are $15. The Photography Exhibit runs from June 21 through July 27.
