1650 Gallery is hosting a juried photography exhibition: THAT'S WEIRD... Let's face it, it happens. You ingest a CF card, you develop a roll of film. Everything looks fine at first... there's Aunt Millie. Oh, and there's the dog being cute. And then you see it. "Who took THAT?" you say to yourself..."What IS that?" is the next question out of your mouth. Then it dawns on you. YOU took that. And you liked it. You KNOW what it is... THAT'S WEIRD! We all have a few photographic skeletons in our closet and NOW is the time to dust them off and send them to us!

This month 1650 Gallery welcomes your oddest and most offbeat photographic moments. Animal, vegetable or mineral. Send us your haha, your most embarrassing or your "what the?!!" moments. Or how about that scary shot of Uncle Jim and the mailman eating that donut? Anything goes! You see, there really are no rules this time... as long as whatever it is... THAT'S WEIRD!!!

Juror: Billy the Mime

Billy the Mime is an avid photo collector and professional weirdo. He has amazed and disturbed audiences across the country with his offbeat performances.
