Photography exhibit at Arts Center East opens Friday | Time Out

VERNON — A new exhibit dedicated to all forms of photography opens at Arts Center East, 709 Hartford Turnpike, on Friday.

The photos come from an open call to artists 18 and older to submit their works in film, digital, digital manipulation, or polaroid.

The images capture the world and look at sweeping landscapes, artistic portraits, action shots, and minute details.

Gallery hours are Fridays and Saturday, 1 to 5 p.m. The exhibit runs through Feb. 6.

The exhibit also is viewable online at the arts center website:

Exhibit jurors were Clare Benson, assistant professor of art (photography) at the University of Connecticut, and Alison Shaw of Martha’s Vineyard, director of the Alison Shaw Gallery.
