8th Annual Fine Art Photography Exhibit
ArtSpace Herndon is pleased to present the 8thAnnual Fine Art Photography Exhibit featuring finalists in the annual Fine Art Photography Competition. Renowned photographer and competition judge Carla Steckley chose 37 photographs from nearly 225 submitted to the competition by 75 professional and amateur photographers in Virginia, Maryland, D.C., and West Virginia. These photographers show how a group of artists with a range of themes and skills can be brought together to exhibit work ranging from whimsical digital collages to realistic black and white prints to colorful abstract images, into one spectacular exhibit.
The finalists’ photographs will be on display in the Post Gallery February 14 through March 11, 2017. Carla Steckley will announce the winners during the Awards Reception on February 25, 2017, 7 to 9 p.m., when $800.00 in cash prizes will be awarded. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served at the reception.
We welcome Carla Steckley as our judge for the annual ArtSpace Herndon Fine Art Photography competition and exhibit. She has been a serious photographer since the late 80’s. She remembers the traditional wet darkroom in her home, where she produced Illfochrome and black and white images. Her specialty was Infrared Photography, leading to numerous lectures on the subject and writing a book about the process. She now happily embraces the benefits of the digital world.
