Take Flight Photo Contest
Humans have always desired to take to the skies. Fascinated by flight, we construct machines to propel us into the air; from kites and hot air balloons to supersonic jets. We admire birds and costume ourselves with wings, imagining what it would be like to fly without assistance. For Take Flight, The Kiernan Gallery seeks images of and about defying gravity.
For this exhibition, juror Jennifer Schlesinger Hanson will select up to 25 images for display in the main gallery, and up to an additional 35 to be included in the online gallery. All images will be reproduced in an exhibition catalogue available for purchase. A Juror’s Choice and Director’s Choice will also be announced.
