Nature Undisturbed is becoming the springtime art event in the Southern Crescent. There is nothing like it in Atlanta. The call for entries is going on now. Nature Undisturbed is a juried photography show and sale celebrating the natural world. The previous years’ shows have been well received by the photography community and those who love good art. Last year the number of entries grew and sales were up. Nature Undisturbed is more than a photo show and sale; it is also a benefit for local conservation groups. There are two categories to enter. The first category is a nature photograph taken at any location, worldwide. The second category is a nature photograph taken on location at a property maintained by Southern Conservation Trust or of the Flint River.
Nature Undisturbed is a great opportunity for local photographers to become a part of a high end juried event. Last year entries arrived from 11 states. Donna Rosser, the show director, has received emails from photographers in Australia and the UK. Nature photography is something we can all relate to. Who hasn’t taken a sunset, beach, fall foliage or countless other nature photographs? This show is inspiration to the hobbyist and beginner photographer. The first place photos in each category last year were taken by Fayette County photographers.
Besides being an event for photographers – it is an event for the nature lover. The photography featured is diverse – not your typical calendar photo. The conservationist can feel good about the show since it helps raise awareness and funds for conservation groups. And lastly, this is an excellent opportunity for the art lover to add to a photography collection or begin one. During the show we will present a panel discussion on collecting photography moderated by juror, Susan Todd-Raque. If you have considered building a great photography collection, this is the time to come out and meet the photographers.
For more information on this year’s juror, the complete entry process, and a schedule of all show events; visit the website at www.natureundisturbed.com. The deadline to enter is January 31, 2011. Everyone is invited to the opening reception at Dogwood Gallery and Framer in Tyrone on April 16th from 6:00 to 9:00.
