Gari Melchers Home and Studio will accept on-line entries beginning Jan. 23 for a juried exhibition of contemporary photographs depicting the buildings and grounds of Belmont.
Belmont Portrayed: Through a Lens will be open to the public from March 18 through May 21. The exhibition follows last year’s successful Belmont Portrayed exhibition that featured traditional painting media. Entries will close on Feb. 17.
“During Belmont Portrayed, we heard from many photographers who asked that we consider a show devoted to photography,” said Belmont Director David Berreth, who organized the 2016 exhibition and will again act as juror for Through a Lens. “Dozens of professional and amateur photographers have used Belmont’s unique architecture and beautiful gardens and woodlands as subjects for their work, and we are happy to create an opportunity for them to show their art to the public.”
Exhibition details and entry forms are available on the museum website, GariMelchers.org. Photographs from all seasons will be eligible, without date restrictions, so both new and older works will be considered.
For questions and more information, contact David Berreth at 540-654-1840 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
