Kellicut International Juried Photo Show

"It’s said a picture is worth a 1,000 words. And as with the well-composed essay, the well-composed photograph can evoke thoughts and feelings in the viewer’s mind." - Jeff Klagenberg

Each year the Michael H. Kellicutt International Juried Photo Show is presented by the Coastal Arts League Gallery and Museum at the Coastal Arts League Gallery and Museum in Half Moon Bay, California. This San Francisco Bay area group provides exposure to photographic artists from around the world.

This year’s theme, “Through a Lens: Energy, Strength or Power” is about conveying a sense of energy, a sense of strength, or a sense of power to the viewer using only an image. I thought this a good opportunity to enter some of my rodeo work. Out of a couple thousand entries from at least 8 countries, 45 were chosen to hang in the show and several more to be printed in an album for the show. I couldn't be happier that 2 of my pieces were selected to hang and a third to be printed in the book. Especially since one of the jurors is Barry Haynes who is a landscape photographer and co-author of the “Photoshop Artistry” series, of which I own all of and have learned quite a bit.

here are the two that will hang on the wall:

Red Frindge

Red Rider

and this one, Wings to Fly, will be in the book
The folks at the league have been working hard to put on a beautiful show and I'm really proud to be among these fine artists from around the world. The show runs from June 11-July 5, so if you are in the area, please stop by. Also, if you are interested at looking at the great work in the show online, click on this link.
