"For more than twenty years, I’ve had the pleasure of working as a professional artist creating artwork for clients regionally and nationwide. I understand the creative process and value the rewards, both personally and professionally, that come with the opportunity to create and be creative.
Photography gives us the opportunity to share what we see with the world. Each artist communicates their vision in many different forms as is illustrated through the exhibition. This collection of images reflects the wealth of talent that we have in our region and honors the creativity of new and emerging photographers.
Whether you are a novice, enthusiastic amateur or professional I encourage you to hone your skills, challenge your eye and continue to find new ways to engage the viewer through the images you create. Above all, enjoy your work and continue to share your unique vision with others." Juror Stacey Morse
