Power of Color Reception

Today was the opening reception for the new Power of Color exhibition at the Boatworks. The cupcakes alone would have fulfilled the promise of the title, but it was backed up with more than 40 color photographs hung in both the front and back rooms of our building.

Despite the many possible attractions in the area this time of year and the wet weather, we had a considerable crowd show up, well over 50 in attendance during the first hour alone.

The show's jurors awarded a total of 7 prizes, a best in show and six honorable mentions. The top prize went to the photo shown below- Sunflower by Michael Callahan.

The six honorable mentions went to the following artists-

Kathy Watson
Joan Myers
Wendy Ritch
Andrew Kazmierski
Jill Saari
Susan Guadagnino

The Power of Color photography exhibition will remain on display during regular gallery hours through July 8, 2011. Admission is free.
