Call for Photography – BOUNTY/ENOUGH: an homage to giving thanks

CityFolk Galleries proudly continues its Call for Artists with, Bounty/Enough- an homage to giving thanks.

November’s exhibit will focus on images representing bounty’s great, or small, or as described through the words of Sir Thomas Malory, “Enough is as Good as a Feast.”

“As a lover of photography, I would like to support the ‘Art of Photography’ by giving it a constant focus and platform at the Gallery and through an online presence. The exhibition will be Juried, with Nick Mohler lending another month of his expertise to the Gallery with an emphasis to reach out to other professionals in the field for future months.”  ~ Karen Anderer, Owner and Curator
