Calling All Photographers!!!

The West Central Illinois Arts Center will soon be hosting an exhibition of photographs. The title of this year’s show is Narrative Photography: Happy Places of the Mind.

All photographers are encouraged to share the ‘happy places of their mind’ which could be a person, place, or thing– whatever makes you happy. There is no entry fee for Members. A $15 hanging fee for Non-members is due upon delivery of the work to the gallery. You may submit up to 4 pieces. A brief explanation of 100 words or less must accompany each piece to explain why it puts you in a happy state of mind. Please fill out the entry form online at our website www.wciarts.org (Exhibitions/Submit Work for Exhibit). You may either include your narrative(s) in the Artist Statement box (please number)… or email the narrative(s) to me at gallery@wciarts.org.

All photos must be framed and ready to hang. The WCIAC Gallery uses and provides ‘S’ hooks for hanging.

Exhibition Timeline:

1) July 6 ~~~~ Deadline for your entry (including the written narratives)
