Juried Show at VisArts in Rockville
The Metropolitan Center for the Visual Arts (VisArts) in Rockville, Maryland is the evolution of the Rockville Arts Place, which was where I first showed work in a juried photography exhibit back in the early 1990s. I discovered the latest incarnation of this organization in March when I was in the Rockville area and decided to drop in to see what it was doing. If you look at their web site using the link above, you’ll see that it is a fabulous facility with a wide range of programs.
On that trip, I met John Hoover, the Director of Photography, who told me of their plans to further expand the Photography Program into a real center of creative photography learning and activity. This was very exciting to me since I have bemoaned the lack of such an organization in the DC area, or at least within a reasonable drive from home in Martinsburg, WV.
I was delighted to receive an email yesterday that two images had been accepted in the 2009 VisArts (Rockville, MD) Members Exhibition. One of the images is “Ghost in the Machine”, which was shown in my previous post.
The other image for VisArts is called “View from the Court”.
This was a high dynamic range capture during one of my recent trips to DC. I did an HDR merge of five exposures and then converted to black and white using Nik Silver EFX Pro.
The VisArts exhibit opens August 2 and the reception will be Friday, August 7, 6:30-8:30pm.
