IMAGES 2016 Reception This Sunday, April 3 at GUILFORD ART CENTER
Greetings to All from Joan H,
The re-scheduled awards reception for IMAGES 2016 will be held this Sunday, from 3-5 PM. This is the Shoreline Arts Alliance's 35th Annual Connecticut Photography Competition & Exhibition. With not a painting in the house (except perhaps photographs of paintings), there's still a lot of good ART to be viewed, and this show is worth the visit, as always, even without the excellent banquet of refreshments that usually may be found at this reception.
I am honored to have two small photo triptychs in the show and to receive one of seven Honorable Mentions. Four $500 First Honors awards went to Christopher Beauchamp (West Haven), Michael Vaile Garner (Middletown), Nicole Croce (Trumbull), and Ellen Hoverkamp (West Haven), and the special Ann Christensen Award (for a photographer "whose work makes a lasting impression" went to Sandra Hale of Windham.
If you're not already suffering from Reception Overload, come on out on Sunday and enjoy this fine exhibition, great food, and good company.
Perhaps I'll see you there. But if you can't make the reception, the show will be in place until April 9 at GAC - open from Noon - 4 PM daily, to 7 PM on Thursdays. After that time, the show will pack up and much of it will go to CT Hospice, where it may be viewed from April 14 - May 19.
