photographyHickory – Again this year, Full Circle Arts will recognize the talented photographers in our area by featuring their photographs in an exhibition and competition to be displayed in its gallery.

Entry into the photography show is open to all photographers, both amateur and professional, from all levels of experience.

Full Circle Arts will accept hand-delivered works Thursday, April 28 and Friday, April 29 between the hours of 11 AM and 5 PM, and Saturday, April 30 from 10 AM until 2 PM. Each photographer may enter up to three pieces, framed and ready to hang, for an entry fee of $10.

The exhibition will open to the public for viewing on May 5 and remain on exhibit until May 28. Full Circle Arts will host a reception on Thursday, May 19, coinciding with the Downtown Hickory’s Art Crawl. Ribbons will be awarded for selected pieces. Refreshments will, of course, be offered.

Full Circle Arts is proud to welcome John and Janice Setzler as the judges for the show. Mr. Setzler is president of the Catawba Valley Camera Club and we look forward to seeing the choices they make.
