My artwork “Arado Flash” is a featured entry in the annual international juried photography arts competition, Art Through the Lens, at the the Yeiser Art Center in Paducah, Kentucky. The opening reception is set for Friday, Oct. 13, and the exhibit will continue through Nov. 25, 2017.


Here are details from the press release:

The competition’s 2017 Juror is Eliot Dudik,  a photographic artist, educator, and bookmaker exploring the connection between culture, history, and politics. In 2012, Dudik was named one of PDN’s 30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch and one of Oxford American Magazine’s 100 New Superstars of Southern Art.

Originating in 1975 as the Paducah Summer Festival Photo Competition, Paducah Photo has grown from a fledgling contest into an international juried exhibition. Over the past 40 years, this exhibition has become one of the Mid-South s most prestigious annual photographic events. To honor its history, the exhibition now exists in two parts: the International Show which features the juror’s selection and the Regional Showcase chosen by second juror.

The artworks in Art Through the Lens 2017 represent the entire spectrum of photography. From historic processes such as collodion tintype and cyanotype to digitally captured and manipulated images and videos, this exhibition hosts everything from traditional photography to unexpected renditions using photographic processes.

Art Through the Lens 2017  supports the Yeiser Art Center’s mission to bring exceptional arts educational programming to Paducah.

Located in downtown Paducah, Kentucky, the Yeiser Art Center is a non-profit visual arts organization celebrating sixty years (1957 – 2017) of serving the community through exhibitions and education throughout the Tri-State Region.
