About this exhibit: For its first juried show, Four States PhotographyEnthusiasts will feature 15 photographers with images chosen by judges DavidSummerlin of Summerlin Studios and Sarah Clements from Sarah M Photography,both from Joplin.
Says Rachel Edgington, the group’s representative, “Wewanted to give our members a taste of real world competition by holding ajuried show. We felt that it was important to give the experience of a seriousjuried exhibit, where not everyone is accepted. We hope that this will not onlybe a learning experience for all entering members, but also give the acceptedentrants confidence to maybe enter a competition of a greater scale, such asPhotoSpiva.”
