On Saturday, February 4 the Carriage Barn Art Center’s annual juried photography show opened to the public with a reception from 4-6pm. The exhibit features over 100 pieces by professional, amateur and student photographers selected for inclusion in this year’s show.
The show was juried by Christina Zanetti, director of the Bruce Silverstein Gallery in New York City. “It was an honor to review the 650 impressive photography submissions,” says Zanetti. “I selected pieces that -- to me -- reflect the artists' aim to encourage appreciation and understanding of contemporary art, creating a safe space to exercise curiosity about their work and engage with viewers through sharing their vision, stories, and connections with the human experience.”
