I was notified this past week that I had one of my images selected to be in the Center for Photographic Art’s 2015 INTERNATIONAL Juried Exhibition. I am amazed and thrilled to have another one of my images chosen to be one of 40 juror-selected winners for this competition, and it makes me very proud. Opening night for the Exhibition is 11/21/15 and the top three prize winners will be announced at that time. Best in Show is $3,000, Second Place $2,000 and Third Place $1,000. The exhibition will be open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 12 noon to 4:00pm and will run through 1/9/16 at the CPA’s gallery at the historic Sunset Center in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.
