CALL FOR WORKS:
Photographers preserve special moments of our time and make them accessible to future generations. These images are a documentation of who we are and where we have been.
This exhibition is to encourage and recognize professional artists in the field of photography. In addition, this exhibition aligns with the museum’s mission to foster art appreciation in the community.
All works in this group exhibit will be for sale and proceeds will benefit RAM and the participating artists.
Theme: There is no explicit theme… We’re giving you the freedom to inspire us with your photography, no matter the style, subject matter or genre.
