Deadline: July 19, 2012
Exhibition: August 29 - September 29
Opening Reception: September 7
Looking at both the vast and the microscopic, landscape photography takes us from backyards to national parks, from mountains to coastlines. This genre includes images of the untouched beauty of the earth as well as places impacted by mankind. In addition to beauty it often explores the contours of our relationship with the land presenting historic battlefields, high-rise jungles, or threatened environments. For Terrain, The Kiernan Gallery seeks images that explore the beauty and complexity of our landscape.
For this exhibition juror Sean Kernan will select up to 30 images for display in the main gallery and up to an additional 40 to be included in the online gallery. All images will be reproduced in an exhibition catalogue, which is available for purchase. A Juror’s Choice and Director’s Choice will also be announced. All photographic media are encouraged.
