CALL FOR ARTISTS
“Imagination Is Your Freedom”
Upstream Gallery Annual Juried Photography Show 2021
"Logic will get you from A to B; imagination will take you everywhere." We believe Albert Einstein's quote expresses perfectly the optimism we long for in the face of isolation, limited travel and postponed holidays. Photographers are invited to ignite their imaginations and submit work interpreting this theme for our annual juried exhibit of photographically based work. Exhibition will be held at Upstream Gallery, Hastings on Hudson, NY, February 4th, to February 28th. 2021.
Guest Juror: Our guest juror DAVE SHELLEY is a co-founder of Photoville–a New York-based non-profit organization that works to promote a wider understanding and increased access to the art of photography for all. Our guest juror will also select BEST OF SHOW and THREE HONORABLE MENTIONS.
