The juror’s results are in. Neal Rantoul selected 26 images from 23 artists from 12 states. Neal provided the following Juror’s statement:
I am very pleased to have been selected to jury this year’s National Juried Photography Exhibit and was very impressed with the wide diversity of the work of this year’s entrants.
Photography is distinguished in recent years by an amazing variety of different approaches, motivations and final results, many if which you see here in this exhibition. At the same time, more conventional traditions such as craft, care and concern for quality are still important. If you didn’t get accepted I would encourage you to work on these disciplines for photography is now very easy to practice adequately but still virtually impossible to be truly excellent at. It may be this, the sheer difficulty of mastering our medium that keeps us going. If you were accepted, you have my heartfelt congratulations and if not, don’t be discouraged. Keep photographing!
Congratulations to the talented photographers whose work was selected for the exhibit. We will have a reception and awards presentation on Friday, June 30 from 5-7pm. (Artists see below for shipping and delivery information.)
