Photography in the Landscape, Celebrating 25 Years of Conservation
The Columbia Land Conservancy announces a juried photography exhibition that calls attention to the natural and agricultural beauty of Columbia County. Professionals and amateurs, as well as youth, are asked to submit photographs by Friday, October 7, 2011. The exhibit is juried by Carrie Haddad, who owns and manages two galleries in Hudson – Carrie Haddad Gallery and Carrie Haddad Photographs. The exhibit opens at Spencertown Academy on Saturday, October 15.
Columbia County is a place of extraordinary and incredibly varied beauty. We’re asking photographers to document the wonders of the land we inhabit and to show us new ways of looking at it. Works could include a broad range of subjects from panoramic landscapes to close-ups of agricultural life or the smallest flower. This exhibit will inspire people to appreciate our natural world and build support for conserving it.
Peter R. Paden, CLC Executive Director
The exhibit is open to images that are manipulated digitally, hand colored, altered, or unaltered photographs and can be of any style or subject which relates to the theme of the exhibit. Ultimate discretion for inclusion in the exhibit shall reside with Carrie Haddad and CLC.
The exhibit will have two categories: young persons (18 and under) and adults (both professional and amateurs are welcome). Entries should be framed and ready for hanging with suitable hanging wire attached or a frame designed to affix to a nail. Each framed photograph shall have the Entry Submission Form placed inside of a sealed envelope affixed to the back of the artwork to assure anonymity.
Each artist is limited to submitting up to 3 works. Submissions should be delivered in person, during office hours to the CLC office.
