The deadline for photo entries is 4 p.m. on Jan. 7 for the Back Roads of Georgia 2 exhibit at the Gallery of the Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.
Georgia photographers 18 years and older, both hobby and professional, are invited to submit work to be juried for inclusion in the exhibit. Back Roads of Georgia 2 is sponsored by the Georgia Backroads Magazine and the ABAC Rural Studies program. The photography exhibit depicts rural life and culture in the state.
The Gallery will host an opening reception for the new exhibit and an awards ceremony for the winners of the photo competition on Jan. 21 at 5 p.m. Guests will enjoy light refreshments, “backroads tunes” by Dr. Jeff Newberry, and free gallery tours. Professor of Photography Dominick Gheesling, chair of Photography at the Valdosta State University School of Art, will select the winners of the photography competition in advance of the opening.
The top seven finishers in the photo competition will receive a portion of the $1,000 cash award provided by the Tifton-Tift County Arts Council as well as publication consideration by Georgia Backroads Magazine and annual passes to the Museum.
The Back Roads of Georgia 2 exhibit will remain on display at the Gallery until April 1. For more information, interested persons can contact Museum Assistant Director and Curator Polly Huff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
