$500 in prizes were awarded at a reception March 5 at 6:30pm by prize judge Steven Skopik of the Department of Cinema, Photography and Media Arts at Ithaca College. This year for the first time, the gallery will have a “People’s Choice Award” to be given away at the end of the show. Voting will be by ballot at the gallery only. That award will be $75.00.
This is a very popular exhibition in the region and it always garners top quality photographic images that range from traditional negative prints to digital work. Show dates are March 3-28, 2010. In conjunction with the exhibition is a special event at the gallery: “The Effect of Electronics on Art”. This will be a panel discussion among three artists about how the field of electronics has affected their artmaking and broadened the definition of what constitutes “art” on Wednesday, March 24 at 7pm. Panelists are: Tammy Renee Brackett of Alfred, NY, Assistant Professor of Digital Media and animation at Alfred State College; Rhonda Morton of Corning, NY, Founder of Alligator Mouth Improv; and John Criscitello of Ithaca, NY, founder of Video/Art/Ithaca. This event is free and open to the public.
