OPEN SHOW Sacramento is a unique presentation platform for photographers, by photographers. The event comes together through an Open Call for photography projects that includes a body of work, which has been completed or is in process. Once submitted, the program coordinator, Juliet Haas selects five presenters to share their work.
This exhibit represents images from the Alumni of the past 11 OPEN SHOW Sacramento presentations over a three-year period of time. Each of the 44 photographers will be exhibiting one image representing their current work or project.
As part of the annual exhibit schedule, Viewpoint once again presents its student show which highlights the work of dedicated students of photography throughout our region. This year's exhibit includes 32 images by 27 students. Just under 50 students entered the juried competition, many entering several images for consideration. Not only does the exhibit offer an important forum for our region's emerging photographic artists, but the process itself teaches students about the competitive world of online applications and exhibit interface.
