There’s a call for photographers — students, serious amateurs and pros – to participate in the Third Annual Juried Photography Exhibition, IMAGES 2011, at the Fairfield Museum and History Center. IMAGES will run pretty much all summer, from May 1 to Aug. 28.
The exhibition provides an excellent opportunity for artists to connect with prominent collectors, gallery owners, fellow photographers and the public, the organizers note.
This year the Fairfield Museum will also feature a retrospective exhibition celebrating legendary photojournalist Bill Eppridge, whose storied career spans over fifty years. His iconic collection of work for magazines such as LIFE, National Geographic and Sports Illustrated captures many of the most important moments in American political and cultural history.
IMAGES 2011 will be juried by Epperidge, as well as Adrienne Aurichio, photo editor and director of Bill Eppridge Photography, along with internationally acclaimed photographer Stephen Wilkes and esteemed photographer and teacher Tom Mezzanotte, who has been exploring the potentials of the photographic medium for more than thirty years.
One photographer from the Professional/Serious Amateur category and one from the Student category will be selected as a Grand Prize Winner. Among the awards for the Professional/Serious Amateurs is a 10-day exhibition at the renowned Southport Galleries and for the Students is a professional portfolio review with a juror.
