Juried Photography Show
CAL is noted for exhibitions of local landscapes and seaside themes. This exhibit will continue that tradition, and add new perspective. Photographers are invited to explore the familiar and find a fresh approach. Luscious interpretations of California can be paired with details that sometimes go unnoticed.
~ Jane Lewis - Exhibition Coordinator
Juror: Robert Buelteman is a celebrated fine art photographer whose art connects audience to subject in an emotionally transcendent manner, in the traditions of eastern wisdom and western revelation.
He has published fifteen photographic portfolios over his forty years in photography, and three of these, The Unseen Peninsula (1994), Eighteen Days in June (2000), and Signs of Life (2009) were published monographs. In 1999, Buelteman left photographic tradition behind in creating Through the Green Fuse, a portfolio of energetic photograms made without cameras, lenses, or computers.
“It’s a privilege to be judging the competition, as I find it inspiring to see what other artists are doing. Send us your best!” Robert Buelteman
Prizes: Juror's Choice Awards: $150 for first, $100 for second, and $50 for third place.
