2017 Members' Exhibit


Each year Viewpoint Photographic Art Center celebrates the outstanding artistic talents and creativity of its members by hosting an annual member’s exhibit.  All current Viewpoint members are invited to submit one of their photographs for display.  New work that has not been displayed previously at Viewpoint or other galleries is preferred.  Submissions are not limited to a particular theme or form of photography. The exhibit will showcase the members’ wide variety of photographic interests.

Submission is limited to one entry per member. Exhibition display space in the Step Up and Main Galleries is limited. Therefore, only the first 100 entries will be accepted.  Please prepare your work early and submit your photograph during the submission period. A member may be placed on a waiting list for entries submitted after the maximum number of photographs and entry forms have been accepted. 

The submission period for the 2017 Members Exhibit is from Friday, May 12 to 5:00 p.m. Saturday, June 3, 2017.

Picturing the Parkway (Call for Entries)

Picturing the Parkway: Celebrating the American River Parkway in Photographs

Considered the blueprint for urban parks across the U.S., the 4,900-acre American River Parkway extends along the Lower American River for 23 miles, from Folsom Dam to Discovery Park at the confluence with the Sacramento River. Combining conservation with scenic beauty, abundant wildlife, and a wide range of recreational opportunities, the Parkway hosts more than 5 million visitors annually. The Parkway also provides a wealth of photographic opportunities in all seasons of the year.

To celebrate this "jewel of the Sacramento region", Viewpoint Photographic Art Center is planning a major photographic exhibit in the autumn of 2017. Entitled Picturing the Parkway: Celebrating the American River Parkway in Photographs, the exhibit will feature a juried selection of photographs made within the American River Parkway. The exhibit is open to all photographers and all photographic techniques.

Viewpoint is announcing this open exhibition more than a year in advance to encourage all interested photographers to explore the richness of the American River Parkway in all seasons and weathers. So get out there and start making pictures!
