"Through the mirror of my mind, time after time,
I see reflections of you and me."

~ The Supremes

1650 Gallery is hosting the juried photography exhibition
REFLECTIONS: THE VISUAL ECHO

Why is it that reflections attract the artistic eye so? Is it the ghost-like excitement of that we can see but can't touch? The imperfect mimicry of the visual echo teases the eye with visions of fleeting unworldliness amongst the solid, explained, and mundane. The wiggly contours of the human face on a puddle of rainwater. The dry mirage of summer sun ricocheting from window glass to city stone. How about the hyper-visual bonding of neon and raindrops on a rainy night? Even the flawless mirror image of mirrors can be interesting in it's reverseness -- or perhaps perverseness? The list may go on and on, but for us dear reader, time grows short. For all of photography is but a reflection, and this month 1650 is here to help sort it out. So wash your window and shine your chrome, this time it's not you we want.... it's the reflection of your perfection we yearn to see.

Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photographs to be included in the REFLECTIONS 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 $30 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.
