“I’ll get out there next week,” John stated.
“But by next weekend it will be gone,” replied Carla.
Annual Photography Exhibit
For our 7th consecutive year our exhibit is live and in progress. As of Saturday, 6 May, the 7th Annual Joseph Miller Abstract Photography Exhibit is open. The exhibit hall is open from noon to 5pm every Saturday and Sunday in May. We will also open it one last day on Monday, 29 May 2017.
There is a fantastic collection of abstract photographs at the Center. Some people create their art at the snap of the shutter. Creating an abstract vision from something they’ve seen or created. Others create a new vision from their extensive collections of images. Applying filters or processing techniques to portray what they’ve seen in their mind.
This exhibit allows for unlimited adjustments. Relying on the final image to express the maker’s concepts. The one rule is that the original work must have come from a photograph. Any technique is possible, with Rounding filters, Reverse Montages, Solarizations, or Swirl filters. Some in-camera techniques are intentional camera movement, textured glass, smoke, and architectural details.
Each exhibit has a unique flow, and this one is no exception. Curator Amie Tannenbaum does an exceptional job creating a museum-like experience. She produces an environment where drastically different images work side-by-side. This is definitely the finest Abstract Photography exhibit in the Washington metro area. It may be the finest exhibit in country.
If you have the opportunity, you should come by the Artist’s Reception, beginning at 2pm on Sunday, 7 May 2017.
You don’t want to end up like John, a day too late to see the exhibit in person.
For those of you who do miss the exhibit? We expect to have all the images posted on the NVACC website, along with previous years.
