PLANT LIFE

ENTRY DEADLINE - MARCH 1

EXHIBITION DATES - MAY 5 - 26, 2023

Open to all photographers internationally.

To view the simple emergence of a blossoming plant or the abundance of flowers in full bloom is a refreshing sight as springtime arrives. The spring season of renewal brings a wide range of flora growing and flourishing after a long winter. The Plant Life exhibition will feature photographs from a wide variety of plant species that are grown year around and appreciated in our lives. Capturing the aesthetics of botanicals through creative photography is a visual appreciation that fulfills our innate sense of beauty. As we celebrate plant life in all its forms, all photographic interpretations are welcome for exhibition; images of flowers and plants from subtle to bold, whether captured through still-life photography or through exploration of nature photography approaches.

Each photograph will be considered based upon the merit of individual images submitted by each artist. Theme based entries are not necessary. A brief artist statement is optional.

Selected artists will have their work featured in the exhibition and online.

EXHIBITION DATES - JANUARY 27 - FEBRUARY 24, 2023

OPENING RECEPTION - FIRST FRIDAY ICT, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 7 - 9 P.M.

In the summertime we take a pause to relax and rejuvenate when the weather is nice and the weather is hot. We go out to seek the calming aspects of water at lakes, streams, oceans, and pools, set out a beach chair, a pool towel, take a swim, or drop in a fishing line. We hang out in backyards, on front porches, have a cool drink while the passage of time slows during this all too fleeting season we call summer. Feel the air and the sun on our skin, go for a drive, take out the bikes, whatever makes us feel just fine. When it's cold outside this winter, let's escape through the breathtaking beauty of images of summer.

Each photograph will be considered based upon the merit of individual images submitted by each artist.

Selected artists will have their work featured in the exhibition and online.
