Juried Exhibition - The Sky’s the Limit
Deadline: July 22, 2011   
The 2011 Prince George’s County Juried Exhibition, will present works in all media that incorporate photographic techniques. This year’s exhibition features purchase prizes by the Department of Parks and Recreation as well as the Prince George’s Arts Council. Photographic imagery is ubiquitous in nearly every aspect of our lives, from billboards, to cell phone videos, to keepsake albums, to Facebook profiles. It is just as pervasive throughout contemporary art – even in media that are often thought of in stark contrast to traditional photography. The Sky’s the Limit presents a glimpse of the ways photography employs itself throughout the visual arts, here and now. Juried by Michael Platt and hosted at the Brentwood Arts Exchange, the exhibition presents the best photo-inclusive art by artists who live, work, or study in Prince George’s County.
