Exhibition
In these dark days, finding those things that bring us joy is particularly difficult, and never more important. Finding and sharing expressions of joy brings comfort to us all. So please, make new photographs, or dig through your archives and share those moments of joy with a world that could surely use seeing them as well. All capture and post processes welcome. We are very pleased that Amy Holmes George will jury this exhibition. Amy will select 40 images for exhibition in our Middlebury, Vermont gallery and another 50 for our Online Gallery. All 90 images will be reproduced in the exhibition catalog.
