Shore Shot Show Opens at the Boatworks

Tonight was the opening reception for the Shore Shot exhibition, a juried show of photography.  The BAC has held photography shows before, but this one was different in that it required that all the work be submitted digitally through our web site.  A total of 115 images were submitted, and an initial jurying on the computer reduced this number to 51 photographs.  These were brought in for a second round of judging, which resulted in a total of 37 photographs in the exhibition.

As is often the case, visitors were slow to arrive, but the crowds did come.  By the time the awards were announced the front and back rooms were filled up with people enjoying the art.

The two jurors, Lewis Bloom and Michael S. Miller, selected the following seven photographs for awards.  All images are courtesy of the artists.

The Shore Shot exhibition will remain on display through July 19 2013.  The Boatworks will have special extended hours this summer, giving even more opportunities to see it.  Those new hours are 1:00 to 5:00 pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, and 1:00 to 7:00 pm on Fridays and Saturdays.  Admission is free as always.
