I just got word from Azarie Furlong, the Exhibitions Manager at The Center for Fine Art Photography in Colorado, that one of my submissions for their Art in Nature show was selected for exhibit. The image selected is from a group of images I shot at White Sands National Monument in New Mexico during a visit last May. I showed a number of the images at a portfolio review in Santa Fe a little later in June and they were well received.
It can be pretty difficult to get work into one of their shows. This one had over 1700 submissions, from which only 50 were selected for exhibit by Juror Kathy Moran of National Geographic Magazine. Nature/Landscape work is one of the most competitive there is. SO many people work in this area and it becomes a real challenge to stand out from the pack. I am thrilled to be part of this show.
It runs from December 4 to January 9 at the Center’s gallery space in Fort Collins, Colorado. So if you happen to find yourself in Colorado in December, check it out.
