Potholes at Paducah

We are proud to have been selected to participate in the 2010 The Paducah collective exhibit which will take place at The Yeiser Art Center in Kentucky. 

Yeiser Art Center 200 Broadway Street Paducah, KY 42001 . 270.442.2453 

 Opening reception June 19th, critique and awards presentation, 5pm - 7pm

Originating in 1975, The Paducah Summer Festival Photo Competition has grown from a fledgling contest to the region's most prestigious annual photographic event. It is open to all without restrictions on size or content. It provides photographers with an outlet for their art, encouragement for growth in their vision and presentation and cash rewards for works of exceptional merit.

Each year from the hundreds of works submitted, 60 to 80 images are selected for exhibition by a highly qualified juror, with 8 to 10 of them receiving cash awards.

There is an opening reception for the annual show with free food and beverage, a juror's critique and awards presentation. There have been recent winners as young 8 and as old as 80.
