About the Show in the Words of Claude Elliott
More than 120 artists residing in the District, Maryland, and Virginia responded to the call for the 5th annual Hill Center Galleries Regional Juried Exhibition.
My goal is to create a compelling and exciting exhibition that features as many works as space allows. The selection criteria include artistic sensibility, personal vision, execution, soulfulness and insightfulness. Most important is the power of the image and its emotional impact, i.e., a work of art that makes you think or feel.
With over 560 images submitted, the judging was competitive. Based on artistic merit, 104 were selected. This is indicative of the many exciting artists working in regional studios, print workshops and photo labs. Thanks to every artist who submitted work for review.
My wish is that you visit often and take the time to look closely.
