6th Annual Abstract Photography Exhibit Open

Bottle Cap - Abstract Photograph by Matthew G. Schmidt

“I missed Julie’s soccer game?  I thought they were playing here next weekend!”

How many times has that happened to you?  You had plenty of time to schedule the meeting, but you just plain forgot.  A couple of months ago I missed the Irving Penn: Beyond Beauty exhibit at the Smithsonian.  Don’t let that happen to you with the Abstract Photography Exhibit.

Annual Photography Exhibit

As of Saturday, 7 May, the 6th 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, 30 May 2016.

This year’s exhibit is an ecclectic collection of abstract photographs.  Many of the images are straight photography, while others are complex manipulations in Photoshop.

The rules of this exhibit allow for any and all adjustments.  Unlike many photography exhibits there is no limit to the manipulation.  The exhibit attracts Rounding filters, Glowing Edges effects, and Solarizations.

I have attended each of the exhibits since its inception.  They each have a different flow and feel.  They are the don’t miss event of abstract photography in the Washington Metro Area.

I will be attending Artist’s Reception today.  It is a great opportunity to meet fellow abstract lovers and discuss what you like and don’t like in the show.  I know several people whom I will be asking where they find their inspiration.

How to get there

The exhibit is in Gainesville at the Joseph Miller Center for the Photographic Arts.  The address is 4811 Catharpin Road, Gainesville, VA 20155.
