Call for Entries

Abstract images combine shapes, color, pattern, texture and imagination to create an image that is largely independent of visual reality. For this exhibition we seek abstract lens-based images made and modified in whatever way you choose.

We are very pleased that Janet Jeffers will jury the exhibit. She will select approximately 35 images for exhibition in the Middlebury gallery, and 40 for our Online gallery. All 75 selected images will be promoted on social media, reproduced in the exhibition print catalog, and remain permanently on our website, with links to photographer’s URL.
