LIMA — The annual photo exhibit from the Artspace/Lima Photography Club opens tonight.
The club, open to members of all ages and skill levels, juried the submissions to 80 pieces from 200.
“The photography club runs the show. It’s been going on since there’s been a club, and it grows each year,” said Sally Windle, ArtSpace/Lima’s director. “There’s active participation throughout all of Ohio. It’s one of the events most photographers look forward to — it’s a well sought after exhibit.”
This particular exhibit will feature a wide range of work in the areas of animals, architecture, landscape, plants, portraits, still life and more. Other categories have been added over the years, but these are always among the most popular and have stood the test of time.
“We’ve chosen to highlight the categories that are the most popular,” Windle said. “These are the areas that have had the most categories in most exhibits.”
Photographers were able to submit up to seven photos total with a limit of two per category. The original photograph submitted had to have been taken in the last five years according to ArtSpace/Lima’s eligibility list. Any photographs previously exhibited are not eligible.
Additional awards include Best Color, Best Black and White, the Club Merit Award and the Youth Award. Awards will be presented at 7:30 p.m during the opening reception. Winners of Best Color and Best Black and White will be awarded $300 each, while those taking home first place in each category will win $100 each.
