Waterfall Arts, as part of the Maine Curators’ Forum 2015 statewide Maine Photo Project, has dedicated its annual Open Call Show to the photographic image. Photographers of all ages are invited to submit work based on the theme of “The Poetry of Maine’s Fog, Rain, Snow and Ice.” All participants in this unjuried exhibit may submit one photograph, either digitally or dark room printed which illustrates the theme; the work must be original work (no reproductions or collages, please). Photographs must be matted and framed and ready to hang or will not be included. There is no size limitation but if the size exceeds the ability to be framed please contact the office at Waterfall Arts for further discussion. All work that is suitably matted and framed will be included; no clips or magnets, please. Work may be for sale, or not; Waterfall Arts retains a 40% commission for work sold. Drop off hours are Tuesday through Friday, March 24 through 27th from 10 to 5. The exhibit opens April 3rd with a reception from 5 to 8 pm and runs through May 15th.
