All entries will first be juried into the show via digital entries. However, awards will be given out after the show is hung and judged on November 6th. There will be over $500 in awards. Due to space limitations at the Bankhead Theater, there is no guarantee that all photographs will be accepted into the show despite the fact that entry fees need to be charged to cover the cost of the show. However, during the reception, there will be a slide show of all the entries, so if your work wasn’t chosen to be hung, you will have an audience for your work during the reception.
Our judge for the show is Mark Citret, of whom Ruth Bernhard wrote: I am touched by the reverence with which Mark’s eyes approach the world before him, the tenderness with which he sees subtle simple beauty that is nearly invisible to, and most often ignored by passerbys.”
The theme of the show is “Passageways, Boundaries and Transitions.” The photograph can be literal or metaphorical, depicting a physical, emotional, mental or spiritual landscape within the theme. The photographs are not limited in subject matter or limited to any particular process. Black and white, color, and alternative processes will all be given equal weight. The awards will go to those images which best express the theme of the show. For those who would like to join the Livermore Art Association for lower fees into the show, please visit www.livermoreartassociation.org, then go to “Home”, then “Join LAA”.
