The Dearborn Community Arts Council (DCAC) has invited photographers — from hobbyists and beginners to intermediates and professionals — to participate in the Padzieski Art Gallery’s Annual Juried Photography Exhibition, which kicks off the DCAC’s new year on Thursday, Feb. 6.
This yearly competition offers photographers from our region an opportunity to share their work in a professional and prestigious gallery setting. Various awards and prizes are offered, including honorable mentions, as well as an opportunity for art enthusiasts to purchase limited, one-of-a-kind art photography.
This highly anticipated exhibition represents all ages, all interests and all walks of life expressed through the three categories of Color, Black and White and Digitally Altered photography. The remarkable artistic range on display presents a chance to experience the world of photography elevated from simple “picture taking” to a higher level of expression and creativity. While current technology benefits both casual and serious photographers, this exhibition serves as a reminder of the line between fine art and simple observation.
Helping to define that line is this year’s judge, Nik Haskin. Haskin is a Dearborn based photographer, graphic designer and independent filmmaker. His other creative work consists of mixed media experimental art as well as science fiction influenced props & set construction. Haskin’s work has been showcased regionally and internationally.
The DCAC thanks Livonia-based PROCAM Photo & Video Gear (www.procam.com) for their generous ongoing support, sponsorship and contribution of prizes for this exhibition.
