PERSONAL NARRATIVE

EXHIBITION DATES - SEPTEMBER 4 - 25, 2020

OPENING RECEPTION - FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 7 - 9 P. M.

Expressing from a place of the personal and connecting on an intimate level is what compels us to engage express ourselves. Photographs which encompass this exhibition will explore the notion of personal narrative through a set or series of photographs that are sequential in nature, collectively telling a story. The photographic works that make up a narrative can be sequenced literally or metaphorically by subject matter, concept or aesthetics, creating a personal dialogue with the viewer. We are seeking intimate expressions of openly portrayed experiences, thoughts, and emotions concerning one's particular life. We each have a personal story and sharing that narrative through a photo essay is a means to express who we are as unique individuals.

Selection for participation in the exhibition will be based upon the series of work submitted by each artist rather than solely on individual images. A brief artist statement is optional.

Taking photographs while out exploring, whether seeking a particular destination, or if the experience of adventure that is the desitination, as photographers we do this. Walkabout is an exhibition showcasing the banality of the everyday. Photographs submitted for exhibition can range from a detailed exploration of a particular location to a visual documentation of one's personal interaction with their surroundings. The act of observing our surroundings through capturing the visual qualities of a location portrays a sense of documenting one's experience. We approach many different ways of describing and documenting location, whether it is exterior or interior space, whether it is captured in detail or from a distance. We experience a sense of awareness from exploring a town or city on foot or driving through the landscape. The works presented in this exhibition will encompass what it means to simply examine a sense of place with the medium of photography.

Selection for participation in the exhibition will be based upon the series of work submitted by each artist rather than solely on individual images. A brief artist statement is optional.
