Wednesday - Sunday, 1-6 pm
I was honored to be this year's juror for the 2015 National Competition for the Soho Photo Gallery. Paul Kessel's somber beauty "Entering The Metropolitan Opera" is the First Place winner. His image stayed with me like the atmosphere of a 70's era Winogrand scene. For 2nd Place, I chose Yorgos Efthymiadis’s "Net" from his "Letting My Guard Down" body of work for it's serene, solitary empty space and color. 3rd Place, I was deeply drawn into the unusual landscape by artist Mark Roussel from his series "Finding and Losing My Father." All Honorable Mentions; Ben Altman, Sheri Lynn Behr, Jennifer McClure, and Robert Moran, along with all the photographs accepted into the exhibition, represent my interest and love for fine art photography as well as portraiture, landscape, street and travel work...read more HERE
Looks like a fantastic show! Wish I could have been there...
Heard it was a great show !
It is a great show. I know, I flew in from SF just to be there for the reception. It was very hot and humid. We all sweated together for the pleasure of seeing the art.
A must see exhibit. I loved it.
Had to represent SVA Digital Photo!
Thanks to everyone who braved the heat to support the 40 winners! http://www.sohophoto.com/participate/competitions/national
Thank you, Elizabeth! You really put together a great show. Nice to see you there!
Great show Elizabeth Avedon. So glad I could be there to meet you and enjoy the show. There is nothing better than seeing an excellent curated show of prints on the walls of the historic SOHO Photo Gallery.
It was a lovely, if a tad warm opening of a GREAT show.
Congratulations on a beautiful show, Elizabeth!
Wish we could have come! congrats on the show, looks great!
Great seeing you again Elizabeth! What a successful exhibition! Amazing turnout!
It all looks amazing!! The photographs on the wall, the crowds, ambiance and people! Brava!!!
It's an honor to be hanging right beside my longtime FB buddy Ellen Jantzen, whom I'll meet in person one day! I appreciate the photo and tag Elizabeth. Wished I was able to make it.
A night of great photography and a gathering of esteemed colleagues. Congrats on the exhibition you curated Elizabeth and on the amazing turnout!!
