The 9th Annual National Juried Photography Show will not have a theme but celebrate the dynamic and diverse medium that is photography.
Vision Through the Lens: A Celebration of Photographic Artistry” invites audiences to traverse the dynamic landscapes of human emotion, nature’s grandeur, and the intricate tapestry of daily life, all captured through the timeless medium of photography.
This meticulously curated exhibition showcases the unparalleled ability of photography to freeze moments in time, offering viewers a unique lens through which to experience diverse perspectives, transient beauty, and the raw essence of existence. By engaging with works from photographers nationwide, the exhibition weaves a vibrant narrative that celebrates the rich diversity and shared experiences of our world. “Vision Through the Lens” promises not only a visual feast but also a profound exploration into the stories, moments, and emotions that shape our collective memory
