California Juried Photography Exhibition
The San Luis Obispo Museum of Art and Central Coast Photographic Society are pleased to announce New Visions: California Juried Photography Exhibition from April 7 – May 2, 2017. This exhibition pays tribute to the compelling imaginations and technical skills of photographers today.
The subject matter welcomed photographers to delve into all subjects, themes, and motifs that expose new images in the world today. Cash prizes will be awarded. Ruta Saliklis, Director of Exhibitions at San Luis Obispo Museum of Art will give a members-only curator’s talk at 5pm on Friday, April 7, followed by a public reception and awards ceremony with the artists from 6–9 pm in conjunction with Art After Dark.
The exhibition juror, George Lepp, was challenged to select the best photographs among the 164 images submitted by 64 photographers from across California. 49 photographs were chosen. Lepp is one of North America’s best-known contemporary outdoor and nature photographers. He is also the field editor of Outdoor Photographer magazine, where his “Tech Tips” column is widely read. His work is extensively published and exhibited; Getty Images, Corbis, and Photo Researchers represent his stock photography.
To complement the exhibition, SLOMA’s film series is showing La Quete D’inspiration/The Quest For Inspiration on Monday, April 17 at 7 PM. This film was born of numerous solitary wanderings through autumnal forests by landscape photographer Alexandre Deschaumes.
The San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, dedicated to the education, presentation and preservation of the visual arts on the Central Coast, is located at 1010 Broad Street, on the west end of Mission Plaza.
