The Gallery invites amateur and professional photographers to submit up to four works across several categories. There is an entry fee and jury prizes are awarded.
The Artist’s Reception, open to the public, will be Saturday, December 15th from 2-4 PM. The University sponsors the Artist’s Reception, at which prizewinners will be announced. Last year’s winners included several Fairfield County residents. “This is one of our favorite exhibits, as it showcases the work of local talent and really brings the community into the University Gallery,” says Kerrie Mills, Art Gallery Board member.
