Saint James, NY - March 14th, 2014 - The Smithtown Township Arts Council is pleased to announce its 33rd Annual Juried Photography Exhibition, which will be on view at the Mills Pond House Gallery Saturday, April 5 through Sunday, May 4, 2014. Public audiences are invited to an opening reception on Saturday April 5 from 2-4 pm to meet the artists and view their work. This exhibition features the work of 20 fine art photographers selected by juror Jennifer Schlesinger Hanson. The artists hail from 10 states across the country (ten of them from New York) The Mills Pond House Gallery is located at 660 Route 25A, St. James. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10am-5pm, and Saturday and Sunday, 12-4pm.  The Gallery is closed April 12, 18, 19, 20. Admission is free. Please call 631-862-6575, or visit www.stacarts.com for further information.

These fine art photographers are extending and reinventing the classic methods of photography. The wide variety of mediums available allows photographers to select a creative process that will enhance their inspiration, allowing them greater self-expression in their creation of a unique, one-of-a-kind work of art.

The juror’s theme for this exhibition was Medium and how various mediums of photography are used to enhance an artist's statement or intention in their work. Works are often most successful when the subject matter is paired well with the correct choice of medium - the two have a symbiotic relationship. The works chosen for this exhibit  reveal the greatest combination of the artist’s medium with their subject and will feature Encaustic on Pigment Print, Kallitype, Cyanotype, Gold-toned Argyrotype, Gold-toned Albumen, Wet Plate Collodion, Tintype, Ambrotype with Collage, and Liquid Emulsion on Vellum over Copper Leaf among other processes.

  • First Place was awarded to Greg Sand of Tennessee for his Ambrotype with Collage work titled Void.
  • Second Place was awarded to Eric Nelson of Wisconsin for his Wet Plate Collodion, on Aluminum work titled Beth: Plate for Praxinoscope.
  • Honorable mentions went to Sharon Hart of Florida (Archival Inkjet Print), Timothy McCoy of Georgia (Gold-toned Albumen) and Arista Slater-Sandoval of Michigan (Image Transfer onto Fabric with Wax and Hand Stitching)

Jennifer Schlesinger Hanson is an artist, curator, and educator based out of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her work has been published online and in print with international publications and she is represented in many public collections.
