2nd Annual Joseph Miller Abstract Photographic Exhibit May 4 – May 28,2012
Posted by Matthew G. Schmidt on May 29, 2012
The Second Annual Joseph Miller Center for the Photographic Arts Abstract Photography Exhibit attracted exhibitors from Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Maryland, Virginia and even as far away as Israel. This year’s exhibit was a resounding success with more than twice the number of images submitted for jurying compared to 2011. Because of the overwhelming response, the exhibit area was expanded to accommodate the display of 66% more prints than the First Annual Abstract Exhibit. The juror had a difficult time choosing the top images to display in the limited space available for the exhibit. Out of 460 images received from entrants, 125 were accepted from eighty photographers. Most of this year’s images were submitted electronically, with only a small number submitted on CDs.
3rd Annual Joseph Miller Abstract Photographic Exhibit May 3 – May 26, 2013
There were 489 entries received from 117 photographers for the Third Annual Joseph Miller Abstract Photography Exhibit and 128 images were juried in. Entries were from Virginia, Maryland, the District of Columbia, New Jersey, North Carolina, Texas, California, South Africa and Israel. Patrons of the exhibit purchased three of the images directly from their makers.
Special thanks and appreciation go to Matthew Schmidt. He gave enormous help in logging in the entries electronically so that the name of the maker was not known to the judge and for developing the exhibition handout. I owe a special thanks and appreciation to Dr. Amie Tannenbaum. She served as curator, arranging and placing the images so that they “go together” – a very time consuming and extremely important part of any exhibition.
