JCC Show

I dropped off my framed print for the JCC Annual Photography Show in Beachwood, Ohio today. They tell me there were 540 photographs entered (from 109 photographers), and only 64 entries were selected for display. So, it's nice to have a shot in the show. I'll find out next week if The Dreaming takes a prize. I'll be out of town for the opening reception - since we'll be in Olympic, but I hope to see the show after we return. It will be interesting to see what images made the grade.

I also took down our display from the local library today. We got some very positive comments from people who saw our work there, and the library board is discussing the possibility of purchasing a couple of prints for display in the building. That would be nice for us.

I'm still working on processing and uploading older shots, and I'd like to get another stock shoot in after we return from Olympic NP. And of course - I'm looking forward to processing whatever we get on this trip. Can't wait. :)

Feel honored having your work in the J.C.C. show. I entered 4 pieces, one which one a prize in a show 2 years ago and had none of them accepted. I listened to the judge of the show who described how he picks what will be kept.
What library were your works in? I had an exhibit at the Beachwood Branch of the Cuyahoga County Library in March.

Thanks for your comment. I'm sorry to hear that none of your pieces were accepted. My husband's work was also rejected in this show - and three of my images didn't make it in. I was surprised that none of his work was accepted, since his landscape work is spectacular. I would have been interested to hear what the judges had to say about the selection process. He certainly chose the best of my four entries. It will be interesting to see the works he chose to include once the show is in progress.

Our work was displayed in the Twinsburg Library last month. Congratulations on your own exhibit in Beachwood, and good luck with your photography.
