Entry Fee: $35 for first five entries, $6 per additional image



response: reply, antiphon, retort, comeback, riposte, rejoinder ……

How do we respond? Many of us respond with anger. Many of us respond with disbelief. Many of us respond with indifference. Many of us respond with our cameras.

We photographers can catch devolution or evolution or revolution. We can comment without uttering a word. Beautiful metaphor and devastating irony can flutter or shout from the image. The passionate confusion of lovers can exist in time with the startling rage of provocateurs.

Response can be in the form of a psalm or an answer — an answer to life’s moments that break our hearts or set them on fire.

Photographers of all levels are invited to submit work reflecting the theme “response” to A Smith Gallery by November 13, 2017. Entries of 11 or more images are entitled to a review of submitted entry images by the gallery directors. The entry fee is $35 for the first 5 images and $6 for each additional image. Fifty to fifty five images will be selected for exhibition and shown in the main gallery from December 22, 2017 to February 4, 2018. A reception will be held on January 27, 2018 from 4 to 8pm. A Blurb full color catalogue of the exhibit with all the accepted entries will be available for purchase.

Jurors for “response” will be the gallery directors of A Smith Gallery, Amanda Smith and Kevin Tully.
