1650 Gallery is hosting the juried photography exhibition
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 photos to be included in the REFLECTIONS group photography exhibition at 1650 Gallery in Los Angeles.

There is an entry fee of $35 for up to 5 images. Additional entries may be submitted for $5 each.

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.

AWARDS: Best In Show, 2nd Place and 3rd Place will be awarded and posted online after the show opening. Award winning photos will be featured on the show page and Best In Show winners will have a small portfolio of their work (up to 10 images) featured in our 1650 Spotlight gallery of photographic excellence.

All Awards winners will also be featured in our 1650 Gallery newsletter, which is broadcast via email to our mailing list. Getting the word out about artists we're excited about helps you do more great work, helps us show more great work, and helps keep the often insular world of fine art photography more diverse and vibrant.
