The Suwanee Arts Center, located in Suwanee Town Center, is gearing up to celebrate its 8th annual juried Photography Exhibit. The call to artists is currently open and will accept submissions until midnight of September 10, 2023. The art center gallery was recently renovated to accommodate a larger exhibiting capacity and has drawn artists from throughout the US and internationally.
This year the exhibit will accept submissions and be judged in two categories: photographic and creative. The entries to the photographic category must be exclusively photographed by the artist with limited post processing. The creative category submissions must also be exclusive work of the artists but grants the artist creative reign to any post production decisions.
A link to the call to artist submission form and details of the submission criteria are outlined on the Suwanee Arts Center website: https://www.suwaneeartscenter.org/photography

He is the recipient of 2022/2023 City of Atlanta Mayor’s Cultural Affair Emerging Artist Award and has participated in solo and group exhibitions throughout the county.
