TREES

Trees. They say dog is man's best friend, but perhaps it is the tree? We yearn to be near them; they hold a special place in the heart. Givers of shelter and sustenance, they feed our bodies and our souls. They inspire through beauty, whether the flowers of an orchard, a mountain-side of birch, or a single old oak or spindly sapling. Trees provide community and companionship; we live and love in their shadow. Home to bird and bug, man and beast alike; the tree asks nothing in return but a place to spread it's branches in the sun and a patch of earth to put down roots. It won't come when you call, but it's dogged permanence in spite of the wild twists and turns of our own peripatetic lives is what charms us so. So giving is the tree, it synthesizes the very oxygen we breathe; a dandy bit of magic indeed!

So this month at 1650, let's turn over a new leaf and give props to the magical world of TREES. Without whom, we would literally be nothing.

TREES

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

- Joyce Kilmer

Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photographs to be included in the TREES Photography 2015 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.

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.
