STORYTELLERS -an International Call for Artists

CityFolk Galleries proudly hosts its first call for artists with STORYTELLERS, an all photography exhibit.  The call is open through August 6, 2017, at 11:59 pm, with the Exhibition opening for First Friday festivities on September 1, 2017, from 5-9pm and running through September 30, 2017.

As a lover of photography and the stories they tell, I wanted to create a space and time within the Gallery dedicated to those stories.  The Exhibition is meant to bring Emerging Artists looking for a platform, as well as Established Artists who may not get to photograph simply for the love of photography, together.” ~ Karen Anderer, Owner and Curator
