Juried Exhibitions are my favorite, especially International Exhibitions. The caliber of photos jumps up a few pegs when their is a cost involved in entering and when the exhibition is juried. This past Friday night, the Exposures Exhibition opened in downtown Durango, Colorado, at the Open Shutter Gallery.
Juried by Cara Weston, of the Weston family of California (Edward, Kim, Brett), made the show one I wanted to enter. This image and a second reflection was chosen by Cara for inclusion. The Exhibition will hang until the first week in January 2014. I was challenged to know what kind of images to submit, as the only “hint” was the name of the show, “Exposures”. I chose two reflections as they are both new photographs. I asked my social networks, Facebook, and my blogs, for input. Lots of viewers “liked” the reflection below. So I went for it.
Another thing I really liked about this exhibition is that a handful of my students ( I teach digital photography) were also chosen for the exhibition. Here we are at the opening reception:
