Currently on exhibit, on our video display screen, is our 2018 Juried Group Slideshow with images selected by Juror Brendan McCabe. Here is his statement:
The photographs submitted have a great variety of subject matter, color palette and aesthetic. The common thread throughout my selections is a formal composition that enhances the emotional impact of the photographs.
I chose images that carry an emotional weight, either in suggesting a narrative, capturing a moment or evoking a mood. That emotional weight in the selected images is enhanced by the strong compositions. The use of lines, juxtaposition and framing amplify the intended effect of the photographs, turning a well-intentioned image into a fully developed, successful photograph. The images in the selected group all are both intriguing and formally pleasing.
Overall, the photography had a high level of aesthetic expertise, and it was a pleasure to participate in the process.
The slide show will be on display through September 2.
