EXPOSURE An Open Photography Competition. The exhibition is open to all domestic and international, professional and amateur photographers, working with digital or traditional photography or a combination of both. Jurors: The exhibition will be juried by Open Shutter Gallery and professional photographer Cara Weston.
The Open Shutter Gallery is the creation of Margy Dudley, a Durango resident and a photographer herself. Her mission for the Gallery is to exhibit fine quality works by both international and local photographers. Pointing out that photography is an important medium through which many issues may be powerfully addressed, Dudley will include among her exhibits works that address humanitarian and conservation issues A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the photographs will be donated by the gallery to support various important causes. She sums up her own passion for photography, saying “the magic of photography is that it captures a moment in time that exists for only a moment and then it’s gone.” In addition to creating a forum within the Durango community dedicated exclusively to fine photography, the Gallery is also a resource for amateur and professional photographers in the Four Corners area. International travel adventures as well as evening workshops, are available through the Gallery. Slide shows in conjunction with Gallery exhibits will occur throughout the year.
