Annual Open Juried Exhibit
Exhibit: December 7, 2022 – January 7, 2023
TWELVE: Objects As Subjects focuses on still life photography in a national Open Call for the 14th annual juried exhibition. Like portraiture and landscape, still life is one of photography’s great historical and current art forms. Within the genre of still life, three different approaches are possible: Constructed, Found, and Blended. The intent of each approach may be illustration, documentation, enticement, surprise, fantasy, appreciation, or remembrance.
