"If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water." - Loren Eiseley
Water: sustainer of all life, ever various in its sources and forms, a magnet for imagination, meditation, fear, and wonder. Photographers have been making images of water since photography's birth, drawn to the beauty and changeability of fog, mist, spray, ice, oceans and rivers, lakes and streams, rain, sleet, snow, puddles, and waves.
For this exhibit we seek photographs that capture the unique qualities of water -- the way it catches the light, cuts through the earth, falls from the sky, sustains or threatens life, and changes its forms.
All captures and processes welcome.
We are very pleased that Ann Jastrab will be jurying and curating this exhibition. She will select approximately 35 images for exhibition in the gallery, and 35 for our Online Gallery Annex. The recipients of the Juror's Award and the Director's Award will each be entitled to a personal portfolio review by Ms. Jastrab.
