Beyond the Lens 2013
Seventh Annual Photography Exhibition


 On Exhibition: December 21, 2012 – January 24, 2013
A  Juried Exhibition of Photographic work.

 Juror's Statement:
"Photography is a medium of great adaptability - it can record events as they are happening, reflect the nuances and spirit of certain places, or be adapted to explore emotional or graphic realms.  I believe the work in this exhibition reflects this diversity of photography, with artists effectively utilizing a range of methods for expressive purposes. 
     Atmosphere, light and selection of viewpoint are all carefully considered here.  Some found the presentation format also relevant, expanding the experience or understanding the viewer has of the images. Congratulations to all who participated and offered their visual ideas for others to consider and enjoy."
