APRIL IS PHOTOGRAPHY MONTH SACRAMENTO—JOIN IN THE CELEBRATION
What better way to celebrate Photography Month Sacramento, than with an event that embraces the artistry of photography in its many forms. Welcome to: Open Show Sacramento an Alumni presentation.
Open Show Sacramento was launched in July of 2016 at Viewpoint Photographic Art Center by local photographer and event producer, Juliet Haas. Since 2016, Ms. Haas has produced 11 shows throughout the Sacramento region offering an opportunity for photographers to share a complete body of work, or one in progress, with an audience in an informal setting.
The concept for Open Show began in 2008 in San Francisco and has now evolved into an international event platform for photographers, filmmakers and multimedia artists. Sacramento's Open Show focuses on the art of photography creating a supportive and exciting opportunity for artists to meet one another and exchange ideas.

The way Open Show Sacramento comes together is through an Open Call for photography projects that includes a body of work, which has been completed or is in process. Once submitted, Haas selects five presenters to share their work at the next Open Show. The build up to the presentation is labor intensive, but Haas handles it like a pro. First she secures presentation venues, and then, working with the established Open Show brand, she creates the marketing outreach and social media posts. Finally, she organizes and presents the show.
This exhibit represents images from the Alumni of the past 11 Open Shows over a three-year period of time. Each of the 44 photographers will be exhibiting one image representing their current work or project.
For more information on how you can host or present at the next Open Show Sacramento please go to: www.openshow.org/en/sacramento.
And take a moment to thank Juliet Haas for bringing such a collaborative and creative photographic event to Sacramento. This is a labor of love for Juliet and she does it beautifully.
With Sincere Appreciation,
Viewpoint Photography Art Center, Curatorial Committee
