1650 Gallery is hosting the juried photography exhibition
A BUG'S LIFE

Ah, the mysterious world of the insect. Some are cute and cuddly, like the furry caterpillar. Some are fierce and scary, wearing their skeletons on the outside to frighten us. Some are artistic and majestic like the beautiful butterfly. And some are just downright romantic, like the firefly on a warm summer evening.

Nothing stretches the photographic imagination like a visit to a strange new world, but on this trip you needn't go far to find a photo worthy subject; the wonderful world of bugs intersects and parallels our own. Like humans, bugs are everywhere! So this month, forget the cobwebs of your mind, grab your camera and your knee pads and worm your way into the nooks and crannies of the fantastic world of the creepers and the crawly! Be here now and in tune with the buzz.... this month 1650 celebrates life -- a bug's life!

Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photographs to be included in the exhibition at 1650 Gallery in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. Additional works may also be selected for an online gallery exhibition page.

There is an entry fee of $25 for up to 5 images. Additional entries may be submitted for $5 each.

All accepted entries must submit a high res jpeg (300-360 dpi , minimum size 5x7") to be included in the printed SHOW CATALOG.

We offer free matting and framing for accepted photographs that fit our pre-cut mat sizes for the duration of the exhibition. We have a variety of frames and mats to choose from.

We will also print your photo for a nominal fee if you are accepted into the show and would prefer not to mail a print.
