Deadline: November 19, 2013
Exhibition: January 2 – February 1
Opening Reception: January 3
The genre of landscape photography is as varied as the earth itself. Untouched wilderness offers as much rich photographic material as manicured parks and farms. From mountains to coastlines, desert to tundra, our relationship with the land is complex and personal. For Mainland, The Kiernan Gallery seeks photographs that examine the wide variety in climate, topography, and development on our planet.
For this exhibition, juror Stella Kramer 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.
All photographic media are encouraged.
