My image “Lake Powell Sunset” was selected for the Open Lens exhibit at Gallery 7, Joliet, Illinois.
“We had 449 images submitted and the quality of the work was truly exceptional!” said Hank Erdmann, organizer of the event. “I only wish we had more space to show them all. As it is we expanded the selection list to 50 images — 35 plus images will make up the exhibit with 15 alternates.”
The invitation to enter read: “Open Lens is Gallery 7’s celebration of the Photographic Image. This exhibit celebrates the vision of photographers and their contributions to the art world. You are invited to experience the vision of photographers and possibly yours as well through the open lens of photographers throughout the Midwest and beyond. Jurors are Joseph Baltz, Willard Clay, and Barry Skurkis.”
The Exhibit Opening Reception is June 4, 2010 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM. You can meet the artists and see the Juried Artist Awards.
The exhibit runs through the July 16, 2010 Artists Closing Reception.
