Landscapes/Seascapes/Local Scenes

I entered one of my photographs into a show at The Guild of Creative Art in Shrewsbury, NJ. I was very excited to find out I was accepted; my first time at that space. It is a very well respected local art organization offering classes and exhibits of its members juried in throughout the year. This exhibit celebrates the beauty of summer with  landscapes, seascapes and local scenes.

Today was the opening reception. I decided to go with my camera to document some of the beautiful things others submitted; all which are for sale. I even got the opportunity to talk to some of the contributing artists, full of great advise and loads of talent. I of course shared with them some of my knowledge on internet marketing your art.

I was quite surprised, not by the quality of the work, but by how many photographs there were! I was also impressed with the diversity of subject matter. While many artists stuck with traditional subject matter such as the beach, as I did, many ventured into abstract expressions and portraits.

These are some of my favorite pieces from the show. All are available for sale at The Guild if you are interested. The show will be up in the main gallery now through July 27th. Stop by and see it in person!
