THOMAS, W.Va. – Cortland Acres in collaboration with the Tucker County Photography Club, announces the second annual Photography Exhibition. Selected images will be used to create high definition canvas prints for display throughout Cortland Acres.
A total of 14 images will be selected from the entrees to create a set of 40 inch by 60 inch prints. Another ten images will be selected to create a set of 16 inch by 24 inch prints.
The judge and curator for this year’s exhibition is Martin Radigan. Radigan has spent over a decade seeking out and photographing beautiful places. His subjects include landscapes, people and wildlife. Radigan’s work has appeared in a wide range of publications and been used by organizations such as American Rivers and the National Park Service.
Photographers are invited to submit up to four high resolution images for consideration of acceptance into this year’s exhibition. Images may be in landscape (horizontal) or portrait (vertical) orientation. Landscape orientation is preferred as this orientation will be exclusively selected for the 14 larger prints.
